“Beautiful, historic church”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We are so glad we visited this fairly small, stone church, originally built between 1785 - 1791 as a garrison chapel. Even though much of the church had to be rebuilt in 1859, it is still the oldest Anglican church on Cape Breton Island, and is still serves as a parish church today.

The interior of the church is well-maintained, peaceful, and seems quite airy for such a small building. There are numerous old memorial tablets to be seen along the walls and on the floor. Outside, the tombstones in the graveyard attract many who come to do family history research. Whether you are one of those or are in need of a quiet place to sit and reflect, we enthusiastically recommend a visit to this church, located in Sydney's historic North-end Heritage Conservation District.
