Elkhorn United Church

Designation Date: February 16, 1994
Designation Authority: Elkhorn (Village)
Present Owner: Trinity United Church

Elkhorn United Church is a fine example of a substantial community church built in a growing rural centre in the early twentieth century. Its functional design, restrained Gothic Revival embellishments, quality materials and modified Akron plan are typical of the era’s Methodist architecture. Through its cornerstones and fine oak pulpit from the local Presbyterian church, the well-appointed structure also recalls the process of Protestant church union in rural Manitoba. Presbyterians and Methodists first shared the premises, renamed for a time as the Elkhorn Union Church, then in 1925 became one congregation within the United Church of Canada.
