125 Year Old Vacant Church Explore

A very large and very old Vacant United Church that dates back to the late 1800’s and was closed about 6 years ago.

A drastic and rapid drop in congregation numbers forced this church to close and now, like so many of the places we explore, its future is up in the air.

As my friends Carlo, RiddimRyder and I explored and navigated this massive church we just kept finding more and more amazing rooms.

This church welcomed multiple different religions in it’s many different sections.

It’s future is now up in the air, having been closed for roughly 6 years, it sits empty and decay is setting in.

The site of this now vacant church includes two sanctuaries that can each seat approximately 750 people, a small chapel, full-service kitchen, gymnasium and a number of classrooms and meeting rooms.

Built in the late 19th Century, it became an evangelical church and then in the mid 40’s it was an Evangelical United Church. In the late 60’s, it joined with the United Church of Canada.

As congregations are shrinking in churches all around it is creating uncertain futures for many historic buildings. Sadly in the case of this one, the dwindling number of people couldn’t afford to keep the historic building.

It is said that the church had about 400 members in the late 60’s and beyond, and when it closed it was down to less than 100.

Wow, what a neat church. I especially love 4 and 5, that really unique organ piping would've been neat to hear in action. I also enjoy the Shakespearean-theater room in number 10. I'm sure the acoustics were stellar

Thank you, I tried to play Phantom of the Opera on the organ, but it didn't work

Wow... That is so amazing, and the pictures are stunning! It's so nice to see that it's not destroyed and still in beautiful (for us, anyway) shape. Thank you for sharing!

I hope they're able to preserve it, I can't stand seeing old works of art like this destroyed through neglect.
