Ontario's Historic Churches

Book - 1990
Rate this:

At the turn of the nineteenth century, horses and riders participated in obstacle races known as steeplechases. The proper course of these races was maintained by keeping a church steeple in sight. The glimpse of a church steeple on the horizon was often the first clue for the authors that a monument to Ontario's history lay beneath. Jim and Sue Preyde have chased down many fine examples of historic churches in Ontario, and present a wide sampling of them here, in Steeple Chase .
