Although listed under Banff, this charming little building is situated on Route 1A, about midway between Calgary and Banff. The building is totally isolated but well worth the stop. It was built in 1875 as a memorial to the Rev. George McDougall and is now...More

Very lovely, well preserved historical church. Not in Banff as many others say. A little off the beaten path if you're heading from Banff to Calgary but worth a stop. It was actually on our way to the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary.

this church is out near morley, which is close to banff but not in the park. if you want to see this place, you need to stop there on your way to banff as it is out of the way.

The Memorial United Church is a Gothic Revival church built in 1927. I loved the modified Tudor half-timbering and a locally-quarried stone base. The stained glass windows were interesting showing the founding denominations and biblical scenes.
