Treherne United Church, opened as Chalmers Presbyterian, is an ambitious interpretation of the L-shaped plan adopted by many Protestant congregations on the Prairies as they outgrew the first modest churches erected in the settlement era. The design by Winnipeg architect J.H.G. Russell, a skilful rendering of Late Gothic Revival styling, with large windows, a well-conceived bell tower and a spacious, warmly finished interior, sets the structure apart from its contemporaries. Russell is noted for his many fine Winnipeg churches and Treherne United, a notable structure in its community, is a rare small urban example of his work.
