Biographical history

Moore Park United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Moore Park, south of Minnedosa in the Rural Municipality of Odanah, from 1925 to 1972. Its predecessor was a Presbyterian church that opened on November 12, 1914. At Union in 1925, Moore Park was part of a charge that also included Justice and Creeford with Rev. W.J. Allan officiating. Creeford closed in 1948. In 1958, it joined the Rapid City charge and later officially merged into the Rapid City - Justice charge. Moore Park United Church closed in 1972. The building was moved to the town of Justice and used as a private residence.
