HISTORY

St George's-Interior The original St. George’s Anglican Church was erected in 1847. This Historical stone church sits at the top of Church Hill Road, overlooking Rice Lake. The first service was held on January 1, 1848.  Thomas and Catharine Traill and their family were among those in attendance. In 1867, The Rev. Archibald Lampman arrived as rector and his incumbency lasted for seven years. By the end of the 19th century the fifty-year-old church was deteriorating and no longer safe.

The present church was built in 1908. Stones gathered from nearby fields by the men of the church helped to keep down the cost of rebuilding. Its gothic design is based on that made by Architect, J. A. Ellis.
