The Purves Church

Abandoned church in Purves, Manitoba
While photographing grain elevators at Kaleida, Snowflake and Purves, Manitoba in July 2014, I stumbled across this former United Church in the ghost town of Purves.

I haven't been able to find much about this church other than it is was a United Church and that it hasn't been used in some time.

There were several steel recycling bins on the property. The building itself looked quite vacant.

I noticed a "two holer" outhouse tipped over behind the church.

  1. A two-holer! Just sit and have a chat with a friend. SIT, you read it right.

  2. Very cool old church. A two-holer is better than a double decker!
