Arrow River Multi Denominational Church - circa 1906 - 1910

In 1905 the residents of Arrow River MB, purchased for $500 the Presbyterian Church from Hamiota, MB. It was dismantled by a local carpenter & hauled apx. 15 miles & reassembled on it's new foundation
The Church was officially opened in March of 1906.
This is the Church that my Great Grandparents, my Grandfather & his sister's family attended upon their arrival from England.
This photo was in my Grandfather's collection, but the years have taken there tole on it.

    You did a really fine job on the pic David, wondered if the church is still around ? The one on the net I thought I found looks a lot smaller. Wonderful how taking a group picture in those days was such a monumental event. Beautiful photo !~

    Thank you so much Phil, that's means a lot to me coming from someone with such talent.
    The Church was torn down in the 80's & was replaced with this Memorial

    You're right that was a big event at the time, they had a good turn out for services that day.

    Too bad, that small church was what I saw on line, bears no resemblance really to what was there in the first place.
  14. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Yes it is, there were hard feelings in the community when that happened.
