Ninga Presbyterian Church

Designation Date:  October 13, 2004
Designation Authority:  R.M. of Turtle Mountain
Present Owner:  Ninga Presbyterian Church

Ninga Presbyterian Church, built in 1906, is a good example of a small-town church built in the Gothic Revival style in the relatively prosperous pre-1914 period. As railways linked markets with suppliers, brick was more widely available and more commonly used for churches. Today the well-preserved walls and sturdy stone foundation of this church, the only one remaining of the four built in Ninga shortly after 1900, lend an air of permanence to the evolving streetscape. The spire atop the structure’s stout tower, as well as ongoing Sunday services in the modestly appointed interior, offer compelling evidence that the community persists.
