Gower Street United Church

Gower Street United Church (formerly Methodist) was established in 1815. The present church building was opened in 1896. The fourth building for the congregation and the third on the present site, it was built to replace its predecessor which was burned in the fire that destroyed much of St. John's in 1892.

Its basic architectural features have remained largely unchanged and include an impressive hammer beam roof of pitch pine and ornate iron grillwork. In recent years over 50 strained glass windows have been installed.

In 1996 Gower Street United Church was designated as a Registered Historic Structure.
