An Insider's Guide to Waterloo Region

Interesting places on and off the beaten track

Freeport Church at Doon Heritage Village

This United Brethren Church was built at Freeport in 1861. It was cut in half and moved here in 1962. It is still used for special services and weddings. There is an Easter sunrise service here each year. The contrail of an airplane is seen in the sky and that struck me as out of place in this 1914 setting.

  2. I love that church. I remember sitting in a pew a few rows from the front. I like myself imagine what it would be like if I live in that era. There is just something about them that makes me feel cozy.

  3. My husband (Andrew) and I were married in this church July 17,1970. We are celebrating our fortieth wedding anniversary. Guess this must be a lucky church.
