Saskatchewan's oldest building gets new roof
Stanley Mission's Holy Trinity Anglican Church is 154 years old
Saskatchewan's oldest building is looking pretty good these days thanks to a $330,000 upgrade.
Holy Trinity Anglican Church is at Stanley Mission in Lac La Ronge Provincial Park in the province's north.
A familiar landmark for travellers along the Churchill River, it's a provincial heritage property and national historic site.
It now displays an upgraded roof and foundation, thanks to $230,000 from the provincial government and $100,000 from Ottawa.
When the Saskatchewan Parks Division examined the condition of the church in 2011, staff found it needed "critical" repairs.
With the roof and foundation fixed, work to continue to preserve the church will go on, the province says.
It's evaluating what repairs need to be done next in the 2014-15 fiscal year.
