Built in 1843 by local stone masons, St. Marks has played a formative role in the emergence of Kingston East for over 175 years – in the sense that the church has been a foundation for an active religious community, one initially tied to the Royal Navy establishment in Kingston, and subsequently since the late 19th century, attached to and nurturing the emerging Pittsburgh Township community. Constructed of native limestone, the church is a fine example of Gothic revival architecture. It was built with the aid of funds subscribed by the British Admiralty and by settlers of Barriefield, many of them employees of the Royal Navy dockyard at Navy Bay. Book your tour here!
