Mahone Bay in Nova Scotia is a postcard type town.  Along the small bay in the center of town are a trio of old churches- St. James Anglican, St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran, and Trinity United.  The mix of churches is the result of mostly German, Swiss and French settlers to the area in the mid-18th century.

Trinity Lutheran is a Gothic Revival building built in 1861 and moved to its present site in 1869.  St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran was built in 1869 and St. James Anglican dates from 1887.
