    The church building known as Chalmers Church was erected on the property in 1877 -- Free Church (Presbetyrian)

    It is one of only five classic steeple churches ever constructed in Elora, only two of which were built in stone.

    In 1917, the use of the structure as a church ended. Since that date, it has served other purposes including public use as a motion picture/entertainment venue and community centre. While owned by the Village of Elora it was known as Memorial Hall, and later as the Elora Opera House.

    **March, 2012: It is being renovated by new owners.

    **Feb, 2019: Unclear how long they have operated there, but this magnificent building is now home to AX ONE Pursuits, an adventure tour company. Rock climbing, ice climbing, zip lining, etc.
