I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.
Old Irish style dry stone fence at Amherst Island Pentland Cemetery. It was built by John Crowe who arrived on the island in 1860. He was paid a dollar a day plus room and board while building other fences on private land on the island, and just room and board while working on the cemetary fence. The 118 year old Women's Institute made a community project to restore it after 2003. Such fences can flex with frost heaving of the ground, mortared walls crack, wood rots.
St. Alban's Anglican Church, picture perfect.
Just this monument and memories remain from the Desmond United Church, 1879 to 1967.
Snow Road Presbyterian Church, established 1885. Snow Road was named after a Mr. Snow who was a road surverer. Snow Road was once the largest shipping location for maple syrup in the Dominion of Canada. The Kingston and Pembrooke Railway had a station a few hundred meters south of here after 1883. Squared pine logs was the greatest volume item exported from here.
St. Pauls Anglican Church, originally built in 1791 by the very first British settlers in the area. It burned in 1816 and was later replaced by this structure.

Elgin United Church with rounded nave.
Abandoned Methodist church. Built in 1908 in this very sparcely populated area. The double entrances on the front is unique.

St.Johns Anglican Church built in 1925 to replace the original church built in 1793 by the very first British settlers in the area.
McDowell Memorial Cemetary, began 1798 for the very first British settlers in the area.

Front Road United Church, built 1873 , Originally a Wesleyan Methodist Church as are many United churches in the area.
Where else would you find a large horse stable behind a rural church except historic Amherst Island? This was an important feature 100 years ago. I have photographed over 250 old churches to date, and 6 that still have stables standing. See Franktown north of Smith Falls on CR # 15, and 10 km west of Renfrew on CR # 5, Lost Villages near Long Sault, and Bethesda north of Picton. The Mennonites in Elmira still use them.
Moscow United Church dated 1869
St. Paul' Anglican Church, celebrating 175 years of service in 2012. Built in 1837.
Bath United Church built in 1825 as an Wesleyan Methodist Church. One tomb stone in the cemetary dates to 1808 for John Davey who recieved the original Crown grant for the land on which Bath is built.
Conway United Church, circa 1882.
St. Pauls church, built in 1904-1905. The stone work is beautiful, the oblique steeple is not too common. The intricate interior wood work was built by James Stanton. It was lit with gas lamps, the gas was made at Dargavel's store and pumped under the street. It was probably coal gas, make by heating coal in the absence of air, driving off a variety of combustionable gas compounds.
Newburgh United Church, built in 1858 of local limestone. Many United Churches were built at this time with a central front door, one large window on each side of it, and 4 windows on the side walls. Most did not have a steeple. They were very simple design.
Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church, founded 1837. This is an impressive building considering that it is in a rural area with little population adjacent to it.
