Historic Sites of Manitoba: Trinity Methodist Church / Trinity United Church (102 Foxford Avenue East, Elkhorn, RM of Wallace-Woodworth)

This church in Elkhorn, in the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was constructed for the Elkhorn Methodist congregation in 1903 and, for a time, served both Methodists and Presbyterians. It became known as Elkhorn United Church following the 1925 unification of the Methodist, Congregationalist, and Presbyterian denominations. It is a municipally-designed historic site.

Among the clerics who served as Trinity United was James L. Fargey (1946-?).
