The old and and not so old in King City

Photo by Barry Wallace

All Saints Anglican Church (1857) is seen here juxtaposed with the King City water tower (1982).   According to Elizabeth McClure Gillham's Early Settlements of KING TOWNSHIP Ontario, the church was built of clear pine cut from timber cleared from the site for the church.   It was bricked over in 1871 and those bricks remain on the original part of the chapel, to this day.
