Note: The gates of the Fairvalley Methodist Cemetery were commissioned by Pearl Vosberg (nee McKenzie). Her parents Murdock Calfburn McKenzie & Margaret Calderwood McKenzie are buried here along with many other family members of hers. The Fairvalley Church once sat on this site, built in 1869. Mr. Jas Sinclair donated the land for the church.

On Friday July 14th 1933 the church caught fire and burned down. The cause was never determined. A neighboring farm house also burned that morning. The church was never rebuilt.
