St. Andrew's has been an integral part of the history of Kingston and Canada since the completion of the city's first stone church on a limestone ridge overlooking the harbour in 1822. It was at St. Andrew's that Queen's University was begun (with a charter that states it must be situated within five kilometres (three miles) of St. Andrew's). Two Fathers of Confederation were members of this congregation. The current sanctuary includes amazing stained-glass windows, the initials of First World War flying ace Billy Bishop and other Royal Military College officer cadets carved into the pews, a 3,000-pipe organ and nine tower bells. The large adjoining manse was completed in 1841 and is listed by Heritage Canada as "one of the finest homes in the city." Book your tour here!
