Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tummel Presbyterian Church / Tummel United Church (Tummel, Municipality of Roblin)

Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This United church in the Municipality of Roblin, the former Tummel Presbyterian Church, replaced an earlier log structure from 1887 that had been situated four kilometers to the south. Built in 1906, and restored and expanded in 1958, it was home to a union church formed in 1916 by local Presbyterians and Methodists, preceding by nearly a decade the formal union that resulted in the United Church of Canada. It is a municipally-designated historic building as of 1993. The Deer Park Cemetery is nearby. An Honour Roll inside the church lists parishioners who served and were wounded or killed during military service in the Second World War.
