The Queenston Library and Community Centre was built as a Baptist church between 1842 and 1845. A Baptist congregation began in Queenston around 1808 with Rev. Elkanah Holmes. This church was used for religious services until 1918 and by the Women’s Institute until 1954. It was later donated to the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and became the Queenston Library, thanks to the efforts of women in the community such as Rosanne Fedorkow. On your next fall drive, cruise by this stunning Gothic Revival-style building at 32 Queenston St. and note that today there is no longer a spire.
