Church on Haliburton

Leave a comment

One of the oldest churches in Nanaimo is still a functioning building. It was constructed in the 1890’s as a Methodist Church. It is now used as a Centre for community services.

According to the description in the Nanaimo Heritage Register, this building was designed in the Victorian eclectic architectural style. The different towers of the front elevation provide an interesting appearance; an attractive departure of the conventional symmetrical placement of church towers.

I “moved” some trees to the other side exposing the building and creating some backdrop. Also, the path in the foreground is pure conjecture, in an attempt to lead the viewer into the picture.
