Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Andrew’s Anglican Church / Westhope School No. 580 / Westhope Cemetery (RM of Minto-Odanah)

On the site of this cemetery in the Rural Municipality of Minto-Odanah, established in 1892, is a monument erected in 1970 that marks the location of St. Andrew’s Church. It operated here from 1894 to 1917. Next to the monument are two commemorative plaques, both installed in 2000 by the Bethany District Homecoming Committee. One commemorates St. Andrew’s Anglican Church and Cemetery and the other is for Westhope School No. 580, which operated in the vicinity from 1889 to 1919.
