Description
Pine River Church Presbyterian/United

Memorial Tablet
In 1919 the Reid’s Corners Women’s Institute gave $125 toward the installation of a Memorial Tablet in Pine River Presbyterian Church. Unfortunately the tablet itself has been lost to history, perhaps not relocated after a new church was built.
The date suggests that this was a list of young men who served during World War I. If so it would have included John Watson and Murray Welsh who gave their lives.
Inscriptions
Between the photographs of the churches reads the following hand-written description:

"Pine River Presbyterian Church was erected in 1869 after (the) first church, built in 1864, was destroyed by a bush fire. It was veneered with brick in 1901, was redecorated in 1948, new maple floor, new seats, a furnace installed, etc. total cost $6170.00. In 1925 it had become the United Church of Canada (and) Hydro was installed in 1938. It was demolished to make way for a highway widening project. The Department of Highways gave a (grant?) of $17,500 for the relocation of the buildings. Construction of the 38'x60' church began May 9, 1958."
