This church looks identical to the First Presbyterian Church (since demolished for a parking lot) in Wyandotte, Michigan, which was built in the same timeframe. Did C. Howard Crane design that church also?

Nice photos Andrew. Good to see the historic architecture being used. What happened to the Presbyterians? Did they go suburban on Walkerville? Maybe Andrew can give us the "new" church next.

The Presbyterians in Canada merged in 1925:


quote:

The United Church of Canada is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada. We minister to over 3 million people in 3677 congregations across the country. Ours is a rich history closely entwined with the development of Canada itself.

The United Church was inaugurated on June 10, 1925 in Toronto, Ontario, when the Methodist Church, Canada, the Congregational Union of Canada, and 70 per cent of the Presbyterian Church in Canada entered into an organic union. Joining as well was the small General Council of Union Churches, centred largely in Western Canada. It was the first union of churches in the world to cross historical denominational lines and hence received international acclaim. Impetus for the union arose out of the concerns for serving the vast Canadian northwest and in the desire for better overseas mission. Each of the uniting churches, however, had a long history prior to 1925.

So there's no longer a Presbyterian Church in Windsor? No bleeding Methodists? That's hard to believe, eh.

No wonder there's so many border crossings up Woodward Avenue on Sunday mornings. jjaba never knew...

Jjaba, using google I found one Presbyterian Church in Windsor on 3200 Woodland. Not Walkerville, but still in the city.

As Andrew's info said, only 70% of the Canadian Presbyterian Church united with the "United Church of Canada".
