Nobleton Catholic Church

Nobleton Catholic Church

The information on this church is that following the famine of 1847, numerous Irish settlers left their homeland in hopes of a better life in Canada. Upon settling in the area of Nobleton, they built a Catholic church on a parcel of land donated to them. The church was formally opened on September 23, 1855. On the grounds was also a horse and carriage shed which was destroyed by a fire on July 13, 1913. The following year it was replaced by a cement and steel structure which still stands today.

The church is now boarded up to deter vandalism. There was a guestbook wrapped in plastic out on the front steps that visitors could sign, during my follow up visit.
