St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Hamilton, Canada

The eleven bells ringing from inside this 180 foot spire will draw your attention to St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church. The bells collectively weigh 9,873 pounds. The limestone bell tower is Canada’s tallest. The parish was named St. Andrew’s when founded by Scottish immigrants in 1833. The congregation was affiliated with the Established Church of Scotland. A decade later, it became the Knox Presbyterian Church. The current English Gothic Revival structure designed by prolific church architect William Thomas was erected in 1857. The name of St. Paul’s was adopted in 1873. A highlight of this National Historic Site in Canada is the 22 stained glass windows.
