The Parish of St. John the Evangelist was formed in 1830. This church was completed in 1875. Well known for its music, St. John's was the birthplace of the Elora Festival in 1979. The Festival and its Singers hold concerts in the church throughout the year. The building is an excellent example of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture. The polychrome colour scheme of red and yellow brick buttresses and external woodwork are all features of his style. The church was designed by Henry Langley (1836-1907) an architect with extensive experience in church design.
