Port Carling United Church. Originally Methodist, it was built in 1872 on land deeded to Rev. Lachlan Taylor by the Crown. In 1925 it became United after a failed merger with the Presbyterian Church.

Port Carling was once called Obajewanung, which means "meeting place" in Ojibway. Ojibway Sandy Island Band (orginaly from Georgian Bay, who settled there about 1854, which makes it one of the oldest community in the area. The Ojibway natives where forced from their homes in 1870, by the Canadian government.
