The area around Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia has been settled by various groups for several hundred years.  The French began colonizing Nova Scotia in the early 1600s and started their settlement in this area soon after.  The Saint-Jean Baptist Parish (renamed later) was founded in 1636 and is considered Canada’s second oldest Roman Catholic Parish.  This church, built in 1910, replaced a smaller building and has a mix of Greek Revival and Second Empire architectural styles.
