Little River Baptist Church in Nova Scotia, Canada was built in late 1876. The wooden church with Gothic detailing also features a central tower. The church and cemetery are now part of the heritage designation for Canada’s Historic Places.
St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church commands attention at the top of a hill overlooking Sydney Harbor in Nova Scotia, Canada. It was built in 1916 and closed less than a century later in 2007. Since then, it’s been fighting to avoid demolition and today it’s fate hasn’t yet been sealed. There’s a tentative plan to sell the church to a restoration group, but the financial dealings are not all in place, so time will tell.
This church was located on the Cabot Trail road on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. So far I haven’t found any additional information for it other than it’s now for sale.
St. Mary of the Angels Roman Catholic Church is located just off the highway in Glendale, Nova Scotia, Canada. The light wasn’t ideal when I passed by, so I included some wildflowers in the frame to try and add more interest to the shot. This Cape Breton church was built in 1875.
St. John’s Anglican is a carpenter gothic style church in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. Although it’s been around since 1753 and is the second oldest existing Protestant church in Canada, the building was nearly destroyed by fire in 2001. It took several years to restore and was re-opened in 2005. You can see how significant the damage was here – http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nslssgs/stjohn.htm
On the drive to Cape Breton Island, this church was an unplanned stop. The tall steeple can be seen from the main highway, so I took a quick detour one morning in September into Heatherton, Nova Scotia. The church will be celebrating 150 years in 2017.
