Knox Presbyterian Church, Uptergrove Doors Open Simcoe County

Knox Presbyterian Church, Uptergrove

Knox Presbyterian became a reality in 1856, but not until Johnston and Thompson – two Scottish gentlemen – had travelled on foot to Toronto to gain permission to build the kirk. By 1883, the congregation had outgrown the church. So, instead of rebuilding, the existing structure was split in two and six metres (20 feet) were added in the middle.
