Central United Church, Sault Set Marie, ON

The United Church resulted from the merging of Canadian Methodists and Presbyterians. Sault Set Marie’s began as a Methodist congregation. Its building was constructed in stages between 1900 and 1911 and still stands at the corner of Spring and Spring streets. The architect was Henry Simpson, though its listing on the Canadian equivalent of the National Register says Simpson’s original bold design was modified. Based on what I see here and on google.maps, however, this is hardly watered down.

The aerial view seems to be a classic D-1 plan type, though the interior panorama crops off what might be the movable partition to the Sunday School. It would seem the auditorium’s acoustics are excellent: witness its use here for a concert.
