Memory Mondays- St. Peter's Church

Built in the autumn of 1827, St. Peter’s Anglican Church was founded in the heart of the Talbot Settlement.  It was erected by the community known as “Little Ireland” on 10 acres of Mary Storey’s land.  There are still weekly church services at St. Peter’s and it was also the site of a scene in the movie “That Old Feeling,” starring Bette Midler and Dennis Farina.  It is one of the oldest churches in Southwestern Ontario, with a blue and white oak frame, limestone plaster, Gothic sashes and window frames, and glass from Buffalo.  A carpenter’s workbench was originally used as the pulpit, but it has come a long way since then.  Take care and have a great week!
