St. George's Cathedral, Kingston, Ontario

St. George's, Kingston fence post Rev. John Stuart, the first resident Anglican clergyman in what is now Ontario, was responsible for building the original wood St. George's Church, Kingston in 1792. The present St George's Church dates from 1825, with additions in 1838-40 and 1891-94.

St George's became the cathedral of the newly created Diocese of Ontario in 1861. The diocese was formed by separating the 15 eastern counties of Ontario from the Diocese of Toronto. The diocese's first bishop, the Most Reverend John Travers Lewis was consecrated there the following year. This was the first Episcopal consecration held in Canada.

St. George's grounds include the cathedral, the church hall, Lord Sydenham's grave and careful landscaping, including green space. The fence posts are marked by miniature bishops' caps.

Nearby is the original churchyard where buried are: Rev. John Stuart; Molly Brant; Lieut. Hugh Earl; Col. Sir Richard Bonnycastle; the Hon. Richard Cartwright; and others from when Kingston was the provincial capital.
