Description: 1775 Bristol Road. Conc 4 WHS, pt. Lot 3 E1/2. St. Ilija Macedonian Orthodox Church was formerly St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church. The original Catholic church was built in 1856 on the east bank of the Credit River, on land given by Richard Cuthbert who lived opposite. The church was consecrated in July 1858 by Bishop De Charbonnel. It was originally called St. Joseph's, then St. Dunstan's, then St. Joseph's again. The church was deconsecrated in 1987, became the Rivercrest Art Gallery, and was sold again in 1997. St. Ilija Macedonian Orthodox Church was destroyed by fire in early 2000. The building was demolished, but a new church was erected on the same site. The original building was designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act.
