MC-004 The Blue Church, Prescott, ON


The first Blue Church, built in 1790, was destroyed by fire. The second church was built in 1809 and suffered the same fate. The present church, built in 1845 under the direction of Rev. Blakey, is in very good condition. The cemetery is rich in history, containing the graves of many who were prominent in the early days of Upper Canada plus a monument to Barbara Heck, the founder of Methodism in America. No one knows the real reason why the church was always painted blue, but the tradition is kept up still today. The quaint, intimate church boasts a Harry Horwood stained glass window of the Rich Young Ruler, and is used for small weddings. (grenvilleanglicans.com)
