Zion Congregation


The original Zion school and chapel was opened in 1847. It consisted of two storeys with the chapel above the school and was enlarged in 1859.

The large building on Peel Street, pictured above, was opened in April 1899. One hundred years later it was replaced by the modern new Zion Church which opened in 2000.

To visit more ABC-Wednesday Z posts go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place.

  1. It looks a beautiful building - by replaced I assume you mean demolished and rebuilt - what a shame! (I didn't click on the link but will now.)

    Great Z post.

  2. Just back from the link and I have to say I prefer the draughty old building to the steel shuttered replacement!!

  5. Too bad the old structure is n longer. I like the older one better than the new.

  6. I agree the old one had a certain je ne sais quoi - I love the historical old buildings. But the new one is still brick, which I love about English buildings. You don't see that here in western Canada.

  13. Although I have visited your other blogs, I don't know that I have stopped by Old Hyde before. What a fascinating idea--which I wouldn't be able to do for lack of old photos. I do, from time to time, post a scan of one of my dad's snapshots from the '20s and early '30s.

Sorry about having to keep captchas on my blogs but I took them off and got inundated with spam - I appreciate your efforts to comment despite the hurdle.
