Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. George’s Anglican Church (Glenora, RM of Argyle)

Anglican settlers in the Marringhurst area of Manitoba built this church in 1889, under the direction of George Stewart of Dry River. In 1916 the building was moved to its present site in Glenora, in the Rural Municipality of Argyle. Designated as a municipal historic site in September 1987, the building was renovated in the early 2000s as part of the Manitoba Prairie Churches Project.
