Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Mary’s la Prairie Anglican Church (36 Second Street NW, Portage la Prairie)

The St. Mary’s la Prairie Anglican Church was constructed in 1898, in Portage la Prairie. It is the third church built for the Parish of Portage la Prairie, which was founded by Archdeacon William Cockran in 1853. Archdeacon Cockran was an important missionary whose work at the Red River Settlement helped establish the Anglican Church in the West. The church, designed by Winnipeg architect H. S. Griffith, is one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in Manitoba. The adjacent Parish Hall was built in 1913.
