Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tamarisk Methodist Church / Tamarisk United Church and Cemetery (Municipality of Grandview)
Originally a Methodist Church when it opened in 1907, this church in the Municipality of Grandview, a provincially-designated historic site, became a United Church following the 1925 unification of the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregationalist faiths. The plain woodwork of its impressive interior is typical of Methodist churches from this period. A plaque beside the church was placed there in 1994 by the Manitoba Heritage Council.
