Churches of Saint Matthias & St. James the Apostle Doors Open Guelph - Postponed

Churches of Saint Matthias & St. James the Apostle

Built in 1891-92, this is the newest of Guelph’s stone churches and the last built with local limestone. The Gothic-style church was downsized from its original plan, resulting in an unusual orientation. The original fine wood ceiling and elaborate vaulting remain in the building’s final form. The roof slates came from Cornwall, England.
