Claude Presbyterian Church - 1870. No running water until 1963!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Claude Presbyterian Church in Caledon. Congregation was founded in 1843 (170 years in 2013), but this church was not build until 1870.

The site of the present church was purchased from James Campbell for $135.00. Local trade people designed and constructed the church for the total sum cost of $2,300.

The building features Gothic church architecture, including its reddish brickwork; Gothic style windows, a 120-foot tower and steeple! The steeple was re-clad with copper and extensive interior renovation were done in years 1991-92.

There was no running water at Claude Church until 1963!!!

Visiting small towns in Ontario and photographing all these churches there and in Toronto, it just cross my mind that there was a great building boom between 1860 & 1900. Most of the significant buildings were erected during this period.

I wonder, if there will be somebody in 100 years, who will be asking what happen in the great condo building boom of 1990- 2013, and if anything survived from that era.........!
