One of two churches in Ontario, West of Niagara, that has continuously offered religious services since it’s construction in 1827, the St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Tyrconnell was and remains an essential gathering place for the community in the Tyrconnell area. Book a tour of the church and its cemetery to learn about its architecture, its churchgoers of old, Colonel Thomas Talbot, and many other figures from war heroes to community members who lived in and left their mark on the Tyrconnell area.
