Biographical history

The Plumas Methodist Church was established in Plumas, Manitoba, located in the Rural Municipality of Westbourne, in the late 1890s. According to congregation histories, the first Methodist minister in the area was Reverend A.E. Smith in 1897. The Plumas Mission was part of the Neepawa district and branches included Plumas, Ivanhoe, Deseronto and Tupper. Records indicate there was a church in existence by 1904. The mission was promoted to a circuit in 1907. In 1918 a Local Union was formed between Plumas's Methodist and Presbyterian congregations. The former Presbyterian building was used for the Union Church.
