Description:
This image is one in a series of postcards from the Reg Near collection. The shows the south side of the St. James Anglican Church and tower. The original church was built in 1856, and is a 40 by 60 foot limestone structure. Instead of tearing down and rebuilding as the congregation grew, there have been several additions to the original structure. In 1885, the roof was raised to create a much steeper pitch. At the same time, the square tower was added at the southwest corner, the porch to the west entrance, and the chancel area was also expanded to the east. The Parish Hall was built in 1907 and a new Vestry added in 1965. The walkway between the Parish Hall and the Church was closed in with glass doors in 1985. The St. James Anglican Church still stands and services the community to this day.
