St. Andrew's

Presbyterians formed a congregation at Niagara in 1794 with John Dun as resident minister. Within a year, they had built a church and, by 1802, a schoolhouse. American troops burned the church during the War of 1812, claiming that British soldiers had used the steeple as an observation post. The congregation held services in the schoolhouse until 1831 when, under the leadership of the Reverend Robert McGill, they built this church. Restored but little altered, St Andrew's is a splendid example of Greek revival architecture. The church's interior, classically Georgian in design, retains the original high pulpit and box pews.
