Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

There has been a church on this site since 1883 when the North West Land Company, the agency charged with administering the Town of Virden on behalf of the Canadian Pacific Railway, granted the property to the Carmel Presbyterian Church. The cornerstone of that building is contained in a wall of the present church, built in 1901 for a Methodist congregation.
