Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
Visit St. John's Anglican Church, Canada’s second oldest church of English origin. Constructed in 1753 in the carpenter gothic architectural style, the church's exterior consists of almost all white brick walls, with black accents outlining the doors, windows, central bell tower, and spires. During 2001 the church suffered from a blaze, but thankfully it has since been fully restored. Inside, find a wooden, pyramid-shaped roof sheltering wooden pews, which survived the fire. Stained glass windows, which allow natural light to fill the interior, also survived the 2001 inferno.

  • Recently walked around this church. We wanted to see it because we saw it in the movie The Healer. Very nice Old church, very well maintained and impressive.  more »
  • this wooden church is just one of 6 in the old town, each one different in style. Makes an interesting way to walk around town. Or drive if you must.  more »
  • This such a stunning church. It looks amazing on the outside and is truly beautiful inside. Gorgeous stained glass windows, marble effect pillars, an information room and view to the crypt too!
  • Beautiful church carefully and loving restored after a 2001 devastating fire. I don't know how they did it, but it looks so original complete with its wonderful stained glass windows.
