Description du lieu patrimonial

All Saints Anglican Church is a Municipal Heritage Property located on seven civic lots at 7th Street East on the edge of the Town of Duck Lake. Constructed in 1896, the property features a one-storey, wood-frame church with corner bell tower, and a well-maintained cemetery.

Valeur patrimoniale

The heritage value of All Saints Anglican Church resides in its status as one of the oldest buildings in the Duck Lake area. Constructed in 1896 when Duck Lake was emerging as a vibrant prairie settlement, the church and its adjacent cemetery have been an important site to the Duck Lake community for over 100 years. Not only a spiritual gathering place for the Anglican faith, the church's graveyard is also significant to the larger community; it contains the graves of the numerous pioneers who played a significant role in the history of Duck Lake, as well as in incidents related to the 1885 North-West uprising.

Heritage value also lies in the building's architectural style, which reflects the Gothic Revival influence that was common in prairie Anglican churches at the time. Its tall, narrow, pointed-arch windows, steeply-pitched roof, prominent corner tower, and symmetrical massing, along with its well-maintained cemetery, convey a picturesque setting of quiet solitude.

Located on its original site, All Saints Anglican Church continues to serve the community as a place of worship.
