An earlier wooden structure was built in 1885 for a cost of $80.00. The west center stained glass window was donated by Mrs. Charles Marshallsay in memory of her husband, a lay minister and the first MLA for the area. The window came from England and freight and customs charges were $700, the raising of which posed quite a problem for the congregation. This is one of Whitewood’s most beautiful buildings and one of only a few remaining stone structures.”
