This uniquely positioned corner church starts out with a Gothic revival style with gothic arched windows, then blends in a short Italianate square tower with bullseye windows. It was built in 1875 for the Calvary Baptists, but by 1968 the building was bought by the Roman Catholic Church for use by the francophone community as Paroisse St-Phillippe.

  1. What a lovely little church! I like the square tower and the lighter brick trim around the windows.
