Biographical history

The Ranchvale United Church was in existence from 1925-1952. The congregation of Ranchvale was originally Presbytrian and was served by ministers from Rossburn. The land for the Ranchvale Church was purchased in 1911. Around 1918, the Ranchvale Presbyterian Church became the Ranchvale Union Church. In 1925, the Union Church joined The United Church of Canada, becoming Ranchvale United Church. At this time, Ranchvale was associated with Rossburn United Church and Rev. M.E. Nixon presided. The last service in Ranchvale United Church was held in June 1952.

Custodial history

The records of Ranchvale United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Rossburn charge in 1978.

Scope and content

The surviving records of the Ranchvale United Church include records of the Board of Managers and its Standing Committee (also includes records of Annual Congrgational Meetings) dating from 1912 to 1943 (n.i.).
