|ZION PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH The West Parry Sound District Museum is a great place to stop by to see all manner of local historical relics and photographs. From the archives, this photograph shows the Zion Presbyterian Church, built in 1877 at a cost of $500. The church was then enlarged in 1890 for a whopping $250. They don't make them like that any more! Please visit the West Parry Sound District Museum on Tower Hill or visit www.wpsdm.ca.||ST. ANDREWS PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Built on the same site as the Zion Presbyterian Church shown at left stands St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. The dedication of St. Andrews was held at the turn of the 20th Century in 1901. The exterior is made of brick with distinctive turret and bell chamber. The interior is finished with quarter cut oak imported from Indiana. A domed ceiling rests on eight Norman arches forming an octagonal shape which seats 600 people. Today, services are presided over by The Reverend Gary Robinson. For more information, please visit St. Andrews website www.StAndrewsParrySound.org|
