This beautiful red brick Georgian structure is often referred to as the Pride of Parade, a magnificent building reminiscent of England's Middle Ages. When it opened its doors in 1841, the completion cost was only 11,000 pounds. Seating approximately 2000 persons, it remains a testament to solid construction, as its only major repair was made after the 1907 earthquake. It has an interesting history. During the Seven Years Night (1807-1814) Methodist preachers were not permitted to preach because of their opposition to slavery. Call ahead for service timings.
