Roseisle United Church

Designation Date: September 10, 2009
Designation Authority: Stanley (R.M.)
Present Owner: Stanley (R.M.)

Roseisle United Church (1891) is valued as a well-preserved example of the type of simple rectangular wood-frame church that was once found in nearly every Manitoba community, but was often replaced by larger buildings as communities grew. Like nearly every Presbyterian church built in rural Manitoba during the early years after the arrival of the railway, it was almost certainly built with the assistance of the Church and Manse Building Fund, established in 1883 by the Reverend James Robertson to bring “visibility and permanence” to the Presbyterian Church in western Canada. Originally located in Roseisle in the R.M. of Dufferin, the church has a high degree of physical integrity, with nearly every historic feature intact.
