Friends of ours were married in this church last year.

History sourceThe Ninth Line Baptist Church (1848)
History

This church is an excellent example of a Gothic Revival style church building constructed in 1848. The church was originally located on 9th Line, north of Major MacKenzie Drive (just north and east of the Museum). In 1954, Hurricane Hazel went through and damaged the church. The church underwent changes through its lifetime but it did operate as a church until 1958, at which time declining numbers caused it to close. It was moved to the Museum in 1981 and opened as a non-denominational church in 1982. This church is very busy in the summer months for weddings.

  1. I love "steepled" (is that a word) design of the doors and windows and the two old signs. Great photos of the wedding.
