An iconic downtown church has been designated a heritage property.
Saskatoon city council approved naming Third Avenue United Church a municipal heritage property at a meeting Monday.
The Tyndall stone church, which sits at the corner of Third Avenue and 24th Street East, was built prior to the First World War.
Council’s heritage designation is limited to the building’s exterior, with the exception of rafters inside the church as well as the church’s organ.
