Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Andrew’s-on-the-Red Anglican Church and Cemetery (RM of St. Andrews)

Link to:
First World War | Second World War | Other | Sources

Built between 1845 and 1849, the building was designed by Archdeacon William Cockran to serve the local community of retired Hudson’s Bay Company personnel and English mixed bloods. Cockran was instrumental in the establishment of the Anglican Church in Manitoba. Much of the stonework was done by Duncan McRae, a mason responsible for the construction of many of the best stone buildings from this early settlement period.

The church’s history and architecture have been recognized both by the Dominion of Canada and by the Province of Manitoba. In 1970 the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada concluded that “St. Andrew’s Church is of national architectural and historical importance” and a plaque was unveiled at a special service in 1974.

The adjacent cemetery is the final resting place of many HBC officers and a number of the early settlers in the area, including Captain William Kennedy. Some of the older burials are located to the south-east of the church.

A stone arch near the church lists the names of those killed during military service during the First World War. It was dedicated at a ceremony on 12 November 1922.
