Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rounthwaite Churches Monument (Rounthwaite, Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa)

A fieldstone monument in Rounthwaite, in the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, commemorates the Rounthwaite Presbyterian Church which operated here from 1891 to 1925 then, after the unification with Methodist and Congregationalist faiths in Canada, as a United Church from 1925 to 1971. It also commemorates the St. John the Divine Anglican Church which operated in Rounthwaite from 1882 to 1982, but has since been moved to the Sipiweske Museum at Wawanesa. Also commemorated is the Rounthwaite School that operated nearby from 1900 to 1967.
