HERITAGE DESIGNATION FOR GRACE UNITED CHURCH

Grace united Church could be home to the city's newest heritgae designation.  In a letter received from Serge Lavoie, the Muncipal Heritage Committee Chairman, he recommends the Heritage label for the church located at 18 Balaclava Street.  The Building was purchased recently and fears are the building could be torn down though nothing to that effect has been substantiated.  The original church, built in 1873, is the only known St.Thomas Methodist Church.  In 1909 a wind storm damaged the existing structure, so tenders called for both a new church to be built and the old one demolished.  The new church was completed in 1910.
