Unfortunately this historic church was gutted by fire Dec. 14, 2009. This church was designed by Henry Langley, Ontario's most prolific church architect of the 19th century. Luckily I (Candace) was able to photograph the interior of this church before this unfortunate incident.
In instances like this there is no warning about the loss of a great building, but often Canada's heritage buildings are at risk of demolition for a time before they are permanently lost. If you hear of an 'at risk' building in Canada, please let us know so we can attempt to document it before it is lost.
