Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Matthew’s Anglican Church (658 Stephen Street, Boissevain, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

Link to:
Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

One of Boissevain’s three historic churches, this building was built in 1890 using stone from the Shorey Quarry south of town. It is an important reflection of the Anglo-Ontario cultural roots of its original congregation. Carefully maintained for more than 100 years, it is an excellent example of the Gothic Revival architectural tradition with its rugged stone walls, delicate steeple, steep roof and pointed arches employed in windows and doors. Its interior is intact with coloured glass and finely crafted wooden features and details.
