A brooding spring sky over St Luke’s Anglican Church.  Built in 1834, it is the oldest church in Burlington and is on land that was given to Joseph Brant, the famous Native leader, for his services to British-Canadian forces during the American Revolution, which in turn was given to his daughter, who donated it for the first Anglican church in Halton.
