Biographical history

Otterburne United Church, formerly known as St. Nicholas Presbyterian, existed in the Manitoba community of Otterburne, located in the Rural Municipality of De Salaberry, from 1925-1964. Otterburne was a stand-alone preaching point for much of its history and was served by various student ministers. It was part of the Waldon Pastoral charge with Niverville and Steinbach after 1957. Otterburne United Church closed in December of 1964 and the congregation joined Niverville. Monies from the dispersal of the church's assets were split between congregations in Niverville and Morris. The title of the Otterburne Church property was transferred to a Mr. McVicar in 1968.

Custodial history

The records of the Otterburne United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers of records from the Steinbach-Niverville charge in 1987 and 1990.
