Christ Church, Cherry Valley, PEI

PEI (Prince Edward Island) has many of these wonderful white clapboard churches and this has to be one of the most beautiful especially when viewed from the highway with the waters of the Northhumberland Strait behind it. This Anglican church was built in 1842 and has been historically registered and the congregation is now in the process of refurbishing the interior to period standards to match the exterior which is so typical of PEI architecture with the wide eaves and clapboard siding.

What an absolutely gorgeous building and I'm so glad that it's been restored and will be preserved for future generations! Reminds me of churches I've seen in northern Minnesota.

Wow first red, red, red, then white, white, white. What a great pair of contrasting photos. Gorgeous church, I'm with Lowell, so glad it is being taken care of.

PEI is on my list of places to visit. In large part b/c of Anne of GG. :)

I wonder how often it needs to be painted.

Simple, stark, severe. We have lots of simple, stark and severe white churches in New England, too.

I love the clapboard and the white. It's so Atlantic Canada and New England too.

It's so beautifully pristine Pat, I have a feeling that it's a much loved little church.
