Description:
Black and white photograph of a church building in the Greek revival style. It was designed by James Cooper and built in 1831. St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church is located at 323 Simcoe St.
Plaque reads:
"ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH
Presbyterians formed a congregation at Niagara in 1794 with John Dun as resident minister. Within a year they had built a church, and by 1802 a schoolhouse. American troops burned the church during the War of 1812, claiming that British soldiers had used the steeple as an observation post. The congregation held services in the schoolhouse until 1831 when, under the leadership of the Reverend Robert McGill, they built this church. Restored but little altered, St. Andrew's is a splendid example of Greek Revival architecture. The church's interior, classically Georgian in design, retains the original high pulpit and box pews.
