Administrative history

The Parish of the Northern Pontiac consists of six churches. Tradition suggests that Holy Trinity Church in Alleyne (Danford Lake) was built in 1864 on land donated by Mr. H. Heeney. Trinity Church, Leslie (Otter Lake) was built of logs in 1865 and the second church of St. James', Otter Lake was consecrated in 1888. The cornerstone for St. James', Wright was laid in 1882 and was consecrated three years later. Work was begun on St. George's, Thorne Centre in 1883 and the church was officially opened in 1894. The erection of a church building in Maniwaki began in 1901 and Christ Church was opened at Easter 1903. By 1903, the Mission of Campbell's Bay was established and construction of St. George's Church was begun.
