Administrative history

As early as 1843, services were held in the Temperance Hall in Almonte by the Rev. Dr. Boswell. St. Paul's was built in 1863, the cornerstone being laid by Dr. Mostyn, the mayor, on June 15, 1863. The land and most of the money to clear the church of debt were donated by Mr. James Rosamond and his wife, Margaret. St. Paul's Church, Almonte opened on Easter Day, 1864 and was consecrated by Bishop J. Travers Lewis on June 29th of the same year. The stone rectory was built in the 1870's. Between 1886 and 1889, the church was enlarged. In 1887, the transepts were added to the church. Bishop Charles Hamilton consecrated the addition to the cemetery in 1903. The basement of the church was renovated in 1951 and dubbed the parish hall. The centenary of St. Paul's was celebrated on June 16, 1963. The church building was given heritage designation in September of 1987.
