Would certainly recommend a visit to this historic site located along the St. Lawrence River west of Prescott, Ontario. As well as visiting the church you can also wander throughout the cemetery and read the many old gravestones. It is no longer an active church but can be reserved for weddings.

Nestled alongside the beautiful St.Lawrence River, the historic Blue Church is a glimpse into the past of local culture. Robin's egg blue, the Blue Church is a quaint little historic place where you can wander through the cemetery nd read old gravestones and search out your family geneology. Weddings can still be held here by reservation. Sparse in interior decorations,... More

Made a point of seeing the one stained glass window made by one of the earliest Canadian artisans who is buried nearby in the family plot. Harry Horwood opened a stained glass studio in Prescott, and one of his claims to fame are the stained glass panels now in Upper Canada Village, which were originally in the Wiser residence. Unfortunately,... More

This was one of the oldest places we visited in Canada, think it was 1790. Its exactly as the pictures indicate, small and cute! Worth a stop if you are driving by, it will only take you ten minutes to look round, an interesting view of history in the area.

While out driving with my sisters today we toured down memory lane on Highway # 2 from Kingston to Cardinal. We stopped at the Blue Church and walked through the cemetery.

This is a very old church, and a landmark on the St.Lawrence River between Brockville and Prescott. It is surrounded by a large cemetery with many ancient stones. Barbara Heck, known as the Mother of the Methodist Church in Canada is interred here.

WE stopped by the Blue Church after visiting the Fort Wellington museum, because they said a veteran of the 1812 war was buried there. we did find some interesting tombstones around the church, but not the one we were looking for.

This little blue church is found about 3 miles west of Prescott, Ontario, on Highway 2, It overlooks and overlooks the St. Lawrence River and although small it is packed with history. Nice little diversion when doing the drive from Ottawa to Brockville.

Had our wedding here and was a great experience. Such a quaint place to be married. Perfect for small weddings to 60 people, and a great price too! Highly recommend for smaller weddings. The curator even dresses up in 1700's garb and greeted the arriving guests. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no electricity in this... More
