Historic Sites of Manitoba: Christ Church Anglican and Cemetery (2 Saskatchewan Crescent, The Pas)

This wood frame church in The Pas replaced an earlier structure built in the 1840s. It contains furnishings and woodwork from that church, including items carved by members of an expedition in search of lost Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin who wintered here in 1846-1847. A stained glass window in the church commemorates steamboat captain Horatio Hamilton Ross.

In front of the municipally-designated historic church (2014) is a plaque erected by the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba in commemoration of Anglican cleric Henry Budd who is buried in its cemetery.
