Long Description:
Initially, untangling this church's history was a bit of a challenge, given the dearth of information unearthed. Most of the information we did find came from the Royal Museum of BC.

A Presbyterian church from its construction (probably in 1919) until 1925, with Church Union in Canada in that year, it merged with the Princeton Methodist congregation to become St. Paul's United Church. It remained in this state until 1971, when St. Cuthbert's Anglican Parish of Princeton, formed in 1911, joined the church. St. Cuthbert's Anglican Church practiced interdenominational cooperation with St. Paul's United Church of Princeton from 1971 to 1984. During that time this was known as St. Paul's & St. Cuthbert United Anglican Church. After the dissolution of the Anglican congregation in 1984, the name reverted to St. Paul's United. An old sign on the church still refers to it as a United-Anglican Church.

With triangular window tops and transoms in place of Gothic arches, this is otherwise a typical Gothic Revival building of the period, with a steeply pitched gable roof. At the gable peak over the entrance is a small bell tower with flared eaves, open all around. The bell still hangs within. The windows down each side of the nave have contemporary styled stained glass. A small narthex with double doors serves as the entrance; above it is a round attic vent where, in other churches, a rose window might be found.
