On Queen St, atop this hill in Hespeler, under a cloudy, almost mackerel sky, sits St James Lutheran Church. I could find no history of this church with the immaculate lawn other than it was built in 1867. Photo taken in early December when all the rain kept the grass lush and green; now the terraced lawn is likely snow-covered.
