Historic Sites of Manitoba: Selkirk United Church (202 Mclean Avenue, Selkirk)

Methodists erected a building on this site in Selkirk in 1895. When they united with the Congregational and Presbyterian churches in 1925, it was raised on a basement and served until the present sanctuary was built in 1958. An extension was added in 2011. The old building has undergone extensive renovation and now serves as a Christian education building.

Among the clerics who served at Selkirk United was Walter G. Crane.
