West St Paul
St. Paul was once a single municipal district to the north of Winnipeg, divided in two by the Red River. This proved cumbersome over time; after all, rivers make the transportation of services and commodities through a district a bit of a challenge. There were no bridges from one side to the other, so in the early 1900s, St. Paul was divided into two RMs; East St. Paul and West St. Paul. The two largest communities in West St. Paul are Middlechurch and Rivercrest. One of the oldest buildings in the area is the St. Paul’s Anglican Church, which was originally built in 1825; it had to be rebuilt twice due to flooding, a pernicious problem for areas built in valleys along rivers.
The area of Middlechurch was so named because the St. Paul’s Anglican Church was situated between the St. John’s Cathedral, the upper church, and St.-Andrews-on-the-Red, the lower church. Having been around so long, the area’s municipal hall is a designated historic site. Today, residents of West St. Paul enjoy its rural atmosphere, scenic views, curling club, yacht club and parks. There’s a lot to like about the area; it has the sense of community and open spaces you’d expect of a rural community, but it’s proximity to Winnipeg means it’s much easier to get services and amenities you’d expect from an urban environment; the best of both worlds.
