Historic Churches of Eastern Ontario, Canada by 

A series of works showing some of the beautiful old churches in Eastern Ontario. All were taken with about a 40 kilometer radius of my hometown of Cornwall.

Special thanks to the following people who opened my eyes to these lovely buildings and the history around me:

Larry Trupp, host of Canadian Historical and Pioneer Sites
Karen Helgesen and Marie Sharp, hosts of Christian Churches, Statues and Crosses
Bev Woodman and Judy Woodman, hosts of Historic Churches

Plus all the members of these wonderful groups whose works are always an inspiration.

Thanks one and all.

    What a great collection Mike.

  • Thanks so very much, Al. We have these wonderful old churches in the area and there’s almost no information on most of them.

    A lovely collection Mike! They look like they were purposefully shot for this; the compositions and tones are very consistent. Another great visual tour of Cornwall.

  • Greatly appreciated, Aileen. There’s a lot of these lovely old churches in the area and I tried to give an idea of some of the variety. Thanks so very much for the favourite, too! Really means a lot to me.

    Very nice! Something about those old churches that makes time seem to stand still. I feel the same way when I see them down home.

  • Much appreciated, George. Many more old beauties captured this year and I’m in the process of adding a couple of new calendars for 2011. This part of Ontario is a treasure trove of these old churches and I even found a listing of even more in the area. Hopefully – before the snow flies! :o)

    Beautiful calendar Mike!! Gorgeous arrangement and composition!! Well done my friend!!

  • Many, many thanks, Blair! And the “fave” is so greatly appreciated, too! From my travels in the area this year, I have discovered many more – and I’ve barely scratched the surface!
