Although Zion Evangelical Lutheran’s church shown here was built in 1890, the congregation is the oldest Lutheran group in Canada.

That church lasted until 1841 and then later was replaced again by this Victorian Gothic building. It’s included on the Canadian Register of Historic Places.
East Ferry Baptist is located in Nova Scotia, Canada close to a popular whale watching area.
