Stained Glass Window

Stained Glass WindowAt the intersection of Lorne Street and 12th Avenue, the Knox Presbyterian Church was built in 1905, and rebuilt at a cost of $20,000 after being severely damaged by the Regina tornado of 1912. It was sold to SaskTel in 1952 and demolished. The congregation merged with the Metropolitan Methodist to become the Knox Metropolitan United Church.
The stained glass window was donated to the museum by the church in 1995.

Trivia

Nine of the twenty-eight people killed by the 1912 tornado were associated with the Knox Presbyterian Church. The Knox Ladies Aid lost all of their silverware with the exception of one heavy teaspoon found 3 blocks away.
