Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Mary St. Alban Anglican Church and Cemetery / Winram Memorial Church (RM of Pembina)

This impressive 28-foot by 44-foot stone church south of Manitou, near Kaleida in the Rural Municipality of Pembina, was designed by Winnipeg architect Charles Wheeler and built in 1892 at a cost of some $6,500, by local farmer W. H. Bowler and the construction firm of Kerr and Magee. It was named Winram Memorial Church in commemoration of W. J. Winram. The building is a municipally designated historic site.
