The St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church was designed by Winnipeg architect James McDiarmid and built in 1894 at the northwest corner of the intersection of Elgin Avenue and Ellen Street. It became a United Church following the 1925 unification of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregationalist faiths in Canada. The building was demolished sometime after 1961 and the site is now occupied by high-rise residential housing.
