Cairn Memorial

When the Canadian Pacific Railway constructed tracks through the village of Abernethy many residents and businesses from Kenis moved to be closer to the rail line. The Kenlis United Church and a Cairn Memorial to the school are still located on the former town site. Every summer the congregation from the United Church in Abernethy have a service in the old Kenlis Church. The Kenlis cemetery also still exists approximately two miles to the north with occasional burials still taking place.
