Long Description:
This painting of the Evangelical Covenant Church was done in 2010 by Tea Preville, a Nelson resident whose body of work has become quite large. She is an artist of eclectic output and eclectic media, this one an oil on canvas, from her online archive gallery.

The photo was taken March 13th, 2015 at 5:36:52 P.M. Painting and photo are done/taken from across Stanley Street, looking west south west.

Built in 1900 as a Congregationalist Church, it was designed by the locally prominent architect Alexander Carrie. After its life as a Congregationalist Church, it has been home to St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s United Church, Radio CKKC, and finally, the Evangelical Covenant Church.

It is considered of Late Victorian architecture with a modified Gothic Revival building style. The corner of the building nearest the intersection sports a very prominent square crenellated tower.

The building retains its original structure, framing, rafters, foundation, siding and detailing consisting of trim, fascias, and mouldings.

The church has been declared a historic building by the City of Nelson Historical Society and is number 22 on the Heritage Register of 2011, Page 39.
