St. Mark's, Pakenham was built between 1826 and 1844 on land donated by Mr. William McAdam. Prior to this, services were held occasionally at various locations in the community. A parsonage was built in 1863 on land donated by Mr. Owen McCarthy. A second St. Mark's was built in 1876 and consecrated by Bishop J. Travers Lewis on January 5, 1883. A burial ground was obtained in 1898. The addition of a tower, spire, and transept around 1901 completed St. Mark's, Pakenham. Extensive repairs were made to the church property in 1934.
