Old St. Thomas Church & Churchyard Doors Open St. Thomas

Old St. Thomas Church & Churchyard

This church, constructed in 1824 in the early English Gothic-revival style, is the oldest in the former Talbot Settlement, and the oldest brick structure in St. Thomas. The church retains many interesting features, including a lych-gate, a Cotswold spire, box pews and Queen Victoria’s coat of arms. The cemetery has an extra-large tombstone, the Chisholm monument and the witches grave.
