Our Building of the Week: St. George's Anglican Church, Sibbald Point

Stepping through the lych gate and entering the churchyard of St. George's, Sibbald Point is like stepping out Ontario and into rural England. This is the second St. George's on this property, which was donated for the construction of a church by the Sibbald family. Built in 1877, the current church replaced the original 1839 wooden church. The current building was designed by Gavillais and Thompson of Barrie and executed by local craftsmen in the memory of Susan Sibbald.
Architecturally the church is lovely with quoines, stringcourses, labels and functioning gargoyles all executed in handcut stone.
