Methodist Church, Halifax, NS

November 10, 2017

Built as a Methodist church, then become a United Church following the Methodist–Presbyterian union, and now all Nations Christian Reformed church, it still commands a gore corner at the intersection of Robie and Charles streets. Styles in Canada sometimes follow the sequence that occurred here in the States, but not always; this is especially true in the Maritime Provinces. So the Gothic Revival of the Ruskinian type lasted much longer in places remote from U.S. influence, particularly the poaching of U.S. architects across a convenient border, such as Knox & Elliot in their Toronto–Cleveland practice.

These two interior views from the current congregation’s website pretty much confirm a D-1 type, not to mention admirable maintenance.
