Nelson United Church Nelson, BC Photo


The photo was taken January 22nd, 2014 at 12:01 P.M. Painting and photo are done/taken from across the intersection, looking southeast.

The first church built on this site was a Methodist Church, a wooden church built in 1895. In 1909 the present church was completed, the foundation having been laid in 1908, replacing the older, wooden one. It was built as the Trinity Methodist Church.

Fire almost destroyed the stone church in 1915, but it was rebuilt shortly after. In 1927 the building became the Trinity United Church after Church Union. 1967 saw another fire in the church. Again rebuilt, it then became Nelson United Church when the Fairview congregation joined it.

Here is a very good article on this church's history.
