Trinity Anglican Church 1836

This frame building was begun in 1836 and completed the following year. An example of simple early Gothic Revival architecture, this church was constructed as a result of the interest and substantial financial assistance of Lieutenant-Colonel Mahlon Burwell (1783-1846). A noted land surveyor, Burwell was the founder of this community and served as a justice of the peace and a member of the legislative assembly. The Venerable John Strachan, Archdeacon of York, preached the first sermon in Trinity Church and the first resident clergyman to serve its congregation was the Reverend Thomas B. Read.
