Union Point United Church

Designation Date:  April 8, 2009
Designation Authority:  R.M. of Morris
Present Owner:  Privately Owned

Union Point United Church and its cemetery are significant as the last built features that remain on the original site of the former Union Point settlement. The cemetery’s earliest burial, from 1879, recalls the agricultural community’s pioneer origins. The landmark building, an enduringly simple Gothic Revival-style structure that succeeded an 1887 Presbyterian facility, likewise serves as a prominent and poignant memorial to Union Point because of its dramatic location between the lanes of one of the busiest divided highways in southern Manitoba.
