Description: 3041 Mississauga Road, formerly 1745 Dundas Street West. Range 1 CIR, NDS, pt. Lot 3. The second church on this site. The original church, built in 1827, was of white frame construction, 52 feet long and 52 feet wide. The parcel of land on which the church was built was purchased for ten shillings by Peter Adamson, Joseph Adamson, Alexander Proudfoot, William Thompson, Frederick Starr Jarvis and Henry Carpenter. The Rev. James Magrath, who had come from Ireland with his wife and family, was appointed the first Rector. In 1887 the first church was razed to make way for construction of the second church, built of Credit Valley stone. In 1910 a tower and spire were added. Listed on the Heritage Inventory. This photo, taken in the 1960s and donated by Beth Rothwell, shows the widening of the corner of Dundas Street and Mississauga Road, with the church in the background. Description updated July 2019.
