This archival photograph captured the original house of worship in the St. John’s Norway Cemetery. The church was constructed off-site and was laboriously moved down Norway hill to the cemetery in 1853. Forty years later a new church was built which still stands today. St. John the Baptist Norway Anglican Church kept the original building for Sunday School and other festivities for almost two decades. It was torn down not long after this photograph was taken in 1910. A special thank you to Gene Domagala for historical information. Do you have a photo you’d like to share? Call me at 416-691-4774.
