Historic church in Georgetown to be preserved
Government is exploring preservation options for the historic Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Georgetown due to its significance to the early history of the town and the province.
“Built in 1842, the church is an excellent example of its style of architecture, its age and its association with the early Anglican church in Prince Edward Island,” Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Matthew MacKay said. “Government will be working with the community and heritage groups to secure this piece of Island history for future generations.”
The church is now owned by the province. Government will be cleaning up the property and will address the structural issues with the building. Temporary fencing and warning signs will be installed while this work takes place to ensure the safety of the public.
The church was recognized as a Provincial Registered Heritage Place in 2009.
