Designation Authority: Souris (Town)
Present Owner: Souris and District Heritage Club Inc.

Constructed just two years after the settlement of the Souris area, St. Luke’s Anglican Church is one of the oldest church buildings in western Manitoba. It also is Souris’s oldest public building and a tangible link with the town’s formative years. Designed by A.T. Timewell, a Brandon architect, the Gothic Revival-style church has been restored to its original form and retains important architectural details, including classic Victorian-era colours. Repaired on the interior following a 1952 fire, moved to a new site after being saved from demolition in 1989 and now a museum and tea house, the solid little church is a fine historical landmark and an important feature of Souris’s heritage.
