This was one of the oldest places we visited in Canada, think it was 1790. Its exactly as the pictures indicate, small and cute! Worth a stop if you are driving by, it will only take you ten minutes to look round, an interesting view of history in the area.

While out driving with my sisters today we toured down memory lane on Highway # 2 from Kingston to Cardinal. We stopped at the Blue Church and walked through the cemetery.

This is a very old church, and a landmark on the St.Lawrence River between Brockville and Prescott. It is surrounded by a large cemetery with many ancient stones. Barbara Heck, known as the Mother of the Methodist Church in Canada is interred here.

This little blue church is found about 3 miles west of Prescott, Ontario, on Highway 2, It overlooks and overlooks the St. Lawrence River and although small it is packed with history. Nice little diversion when doing the drive from Ottawa to Brockville.

Had our wedding here and was a great experience. Such a quaint place to be married. Perfect for small weddings to 60 people, and a great price too! Highly recommend for smaller weddings. The curator even dresses up in 1700's garb and greeted the arriving guests. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no electricity in this... More

My folks, nephews and I visited The Blue Church on our way back from Upper Canada Village. Peaceful spot and interesting reading (the headstones in the surrounding cemetary). Learned a lot.
