St George's Memorial Church, Oshawa

St George's Memorial Church, Oshawa, OntarioSt George's has been an independent parish since 1873. The congregation was formed in 1843 worshipping in the old Court House with an incumbant who was also responsible for St. Paul's, Columbus and St. John's Port Whitby.

The first church building was a simple wood structure erected about 1848 which served the congregation until 1858. It was replaced by a more elaborate frame building with a tower and spire. That building was enlarged in 1880 when a Parish Hall was also built.

The present St George's, built of Credit Valley whitestone, was opened in May 1924. The tower and carillon were given by Thomas Houston of Cincinnati, Ohio in memory of Mrs. Houston's father, Edward Carswell. The 15 bells installed in the Memorial Tower were made by the Whitechapel Bell foundry in London England. The largest bell weighs 52 hundredweight (about 2600 kg).
