Photographer's Note

Jackson's Point is a small community in the York Region of Ontario on the shores of Lake Simcoe. Settled in the early 1800s to support schooners traveling on Lake Simcoe. This church was built with hand-cut stones in 1877. Each stone was thoroughly inspected in order to prevent any with iron from being used in the architecture. However a few did manage to elude the builders as rust stains are apparent on one part of the structure.

On the grounds surrounding the church there is a burial ground for people who had strong ties to the Jackson’s Point area including prominent Canadian authors Stephen Leacock and Mazo De La Roche.
