Plaque Text

A superb example of "carpenter's Gothic" architecture, this building was constructed to serve a Church of Scotland congregation organized about 1829. It was built during the rectorship of the Rev. Donald Ross by John McDonald, a local contractor, and opened for service on November 11, 1862. St. Andrew's tall, pointed openings and central, projecting tower demonstrate how strongly its design was influenced by early Victorian architecture of the Gothic Revival. It is distinguished by its refined composition and excellent joinery, and many elements, such as the buttresses, are very slender because they are executed in wood. The tower is surmounted by a handsome, octagonal spire of more solid form. St. Andrew's has been twice extended, and in 1946 its interior was extensively renovated.
