Learn about our Historic Churches and Cemeteries

Saint John is blessed with a wonderful collection of churches – from St. George's-St. Jude's Anglican Church at nearly 200 years old, to St. John’s Stone Church, a National Historic Site. Their spires and bell-towers are an important part of the Saint John skyline, just as their traditions and rituals are an important part of the lives of so many in our community. You can enjoy the art and architecture of these wonderful buildings, but a visit isn’t complete without a stroll through their historic cemeteries and burial grounds. Wander amongst the historic grave markers – some dating back to 1783 – and steep in the history of these quiet places. Churches:
