St. Paul's United Church, Graysville

Originally Presbyterian when it was built in 1912, St. Paul’s United Church is an important example of the kind of Gothic Revival building that nearly every Protestant community put up in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The basic box-like form, with steep gable roof and especially the pointed Gothic windows along the nave and main façade, makes the church typical.

But St. Paul’s rises above other similar churches with a striking piece of architectural design— the elaborate and detailed steeple/bell tower that dramatically animates the roofline at the building’s main façade. With its openings of tripartite pointed arches and then tall pyramidal roof with inset gables, the tower is a cherished feature on a beloved church.
