Hoosier United Church

The church was built in 1916 in the former hamlet of Hoosier, and served the dual role as a place of worship and a community centre. Although weekly religious services ended in 1966, the church was used as a community centre well up until the 1990s.  

The heritage value of the Hoosier United Church also lies in its architecture. Built in 1916, the church’s subdued Gothic architecture vests this simple wood-frame building with a dignified beauty. The Gothic Revival influence is visible in the form and proportions, massing and windows. The sanctuary is laid out traditionally with the pulpit, raised upon a stage, facing rows of pews which are divided by a central aisle. Located in southwest Saskatchewan, visited in May 2016.
