Historic Sites of Manitoba: Home Street Presbyterian Church / Home Street United Church / Home Street Mennonite Church (318 Home Street, Winnipeg)

Built in 1920 on a design by local architect J. H. G. Russell, this massive two-storey brick building was first used as a Presbyterian congregation. Following the 1925 unification of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregational faiths in Canada, it became Home Street United Church. In 1974, it was sold and became Home Street Mennonite Church.

Among the clerics of Home Street Presbyterian Church was Hugh John Robertson (1907-1918).
