Historic Sites of Manitoba: High Bluff Presbyterian Church / High Bluff United Church (High Bluff, RM of Portage la Prairie)

This former church in High Bluff, in the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie, began life in 1890 as High Bluff Presbyterian Church. It became a United Church following the 1925 merger of the Presbyterian, Congregational, and Methodist faiths in Canada. Closed in 2004, its roll was transferred to Trinity United Church in Portage la Prairie and the former church building is presently used as a bed and breakfast.

Among the clerics of High Bluff United Church were Hugh Hamilton (c1929), Walter Royle (1943-1944), and Frederick William Lee (1948-1951).
