Anglican Church Being Moved to Louisiana

All Saints Anglican Church, Granville Centre All Saints Anglican Church in Granville Centre, N.S., about 110 kilometres northwest of Halifax, is being dismantled, moved to Louisiana and reassembled in Abita Springs, Louisiana, where it will serve as a Baptist church.

The Granville Centre congregation had decided to merge with St. Luke's Church in Annapolis Royal. Their building which was constructed in 1811 was consecrated in 1814. A deal to relocate the building to Ontario fell through and the Annapolis Heritage Society was unsuccessful in an attempt to intervene on behalf of the structure.

Its new home 90 kilometres north of New Orleans is in an area of older buildings. The congregation there is new but wanted a building that would fit into their community.

Cobblestone Church

St James' Anglican Church, Paris, OntarioThe original part of St James' Anglican Church, Paris, Ontario was constructed in 1839 using cobblestones.

In the late 1830s, 300 was received from the Duchess of Leeds and 200 from St. James' Church of Edinburgh, Scotland for an Anglican church in Paris. The terms of the gift stipulated that the church be named St James and be built of stone.

There were no nearby quarries. The town's Anglicans gave Levi Boughton, a mason from Albany, New York who had settled in Paris, his first cobblestone commission. Boughton was given two years to construct the building and with the aid of the parishioners collected cobblestones from the west bank of the Grand River.
