Other title information

The cornerstone of the First Methodist Church was laid in 1899 by Mrs. Arma Sifton (wife of Clifford Sifton). Construction was completed eight months later. In 1925 the First Methodist Church joined the United Church of Canada and became the First United Church of Brandon. This church existed until 1969 until it amalgamated with three other congregations and relocated across the street at the Central United Church. The First Methodist Church building was demolished in 1971 and the Lawson Lodge was later built at this site. The church's original carillion bells, donated by Mrs. Arma Sifton were relocated to the International Peace Garden's Carillion Bell Tower.
