Although Zion Evangelical Lutheran’s church shown here was built in 1890, the congregation is the oldest Lutheran group in Canada.  The Lutherans who settled in this part of Nova Scotia started holding services outdoors in 1753, then held services in the town’s Anglican church and eventually built their first building in 1772.  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.  Although the building looked in great shape when I photographed here, it seems services are no longer held.  Based on the age of other Digby Neck churches, it may date to the 19th century, but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.
