This is yet another old church that I found in the Weston neighbourhood of the city. St John's Anglican Church was established in 1856 and this church built in 1879 several blocks north of this location and a fair distance from the downtown section of Weston which was then a small farming town. A decision was made to move it south closer to downtown and the move began in winter of 1894 while the dirt roads were frozen. A thaw came during the move and turned the road to mud and the church was parked in this location on Main St (now Weston Rd) and never moved any further. It thus remained a few blocks from the centre of town. The building has heritage listing and hopefully remains here for many more years!
