Long Description:

The cornerstone of the church was laid on June 29, 1838 and construction was largely completed by 1841. This church is one of the few surviving structures in Ontario built of "rammed earth". This method of construction utilized wet clay mixed with chopped straw, compacted into forms and covered, when dry, with plaster or siding for protection against weather. The church was officially opened on February 27, 1842.
