St. Mark's Anglican Church, built in 1841 - gone!!
On this sunny Saturday morning I decided to go over to St. Mark's Anglican Church in Rustico to take a few last photos and maybe some measurements of the exterior before they tear it down. I was surprised to see it gone already! All that was left was a filled-in hole and a few wide hemlock boards and a hand-hewn beam. To think of the hard work that went into building it 175 years ago - there was no going to Kent or Home Depot for supplies - it all came with hard work and the skill of carpenters.
I meandered through the cemetery and took a few photos of some old stones.
Here's a few photos I've taken over the years of St. Mark's.
