Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (77 Second Avenue SW, Carman)

Link to:
Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This impressive building at the intersection of Second Avenue SW and Second Street SW in Carman was designed and built by local contractor Edmund Watson and opened in February 1899 by the congregation of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. In 1925, the congregation voted to merge with that of Albert Carman Methodist Church to become Carman United Church but separate services were held until July 1941, at which time this church closed. In 1945, the building was sold to the Church of Christ congregation. At some point it was renovated into a private residence, bed and breakfast, and bistro. The 1898 cornerstone of the former church is placed at the base of its steeple.
