Long Description:
The baptismal font stands at the back of the church to the right of the entrance. This impressive carved stone font catches your eye as you enter the church. The beautifully carved wooden lid is probably mahogany.

St. George’s Anglican Church is valued as the oldest Anglican Church in Cape Breton; the oldest building in Sydney; for the property’s long history; and as a representation of the important role its parish council played in colonial Cape Breton. Many of Sydney's early and prominent citizens are buried in its cemetery. The stone Gothic Revival style church, built between 1785 and 1791, is a local landmark. St George’s architecture is a simple, clean expression of dignity and solidness.
