The St. Margaret’s Anglican Church at Mafeking, in the Rural Municipality of Mountain, was built in 1940 and closed in March 2002. The final service of deconsecration took place on 7 May 2003. Its interior, still fitted with handmade pews, was later used as a community museum. The building is a municipally-designated historic site as of 2004. Some restoration of the building was done as part of the Manitoba Prairie Churches Project and a commemorative monument was erected in 2005.
