McDougall Memorial United Church
The McDougal Memorial United Church is located on the north bank of the Bow River, near the communities of Morley and Cochrane, Alberta. This small one story church was constructed in 1875, and was the earliest example of the Carpenter’s Gothic style of architecture still standing in its original location. This particular style of architecture uses wood to immitate European Gothic architectural elements which were traditionally made from stone. The church was restored in the 1950s, but was tragically lost in a fire in May of 2017. *If you look inside the church, you can make out the remains of the church’s piano and other objects.
