Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Mark’s Anglican Church (First Street, Elkhorn, RM of Wallace-Woodworth)

This Anglican church, constructed in Elkhorn in 1887, has the curious feature of a burial stone belonging to William John Rodgers (1897-1918), a member of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War, in its front flower bed. Private Rodgers was killed on 9 July 1918. An annex to the original building was added to accommodate children from the Elkhorn Indian Residential School who attended services. A stained glass window, called the McClauslin window, is located on the back wall behind the altar.
