Interesting facts: While built as a Presbyterian Church in 1894, the Methodists and Presbyterians combined services here. In 1944 it became Knox United church. A plaque set in the stone wall in 1994 commemorates Norm MacKay, a descendant of one of the original settler families. The stone fence surrounded the church to keep wandering livestock out of the church yard. In its early years, if the weather was unfavourable on Sunday, church services were simply held on a different day.
