L'?glise et le presbyt?re St. Andrew's

[English]
This substantial Presbyterian Church was a reflection of the prosperity and commitment of the congregation it served. Erected in 1901, it boasted a pipe organ and carved oak pews that could accommodate 600. The church bore the architectural stamp of the Gothic Revival popular elsewhere in the country. Together, with the spacious manse, of Second Empire design, it was one more element of familiarity in respectability in a city that was rapidly changing from its boom-town origins.

[French]
Cette grande ?glies presbyt?rienne t?moignait de la porsp?rit? et la fid?lit? des paroissiens qui la fr?quentaient. Erig?e en 1901, l'?glise ?tait fi?re de poss?der un orgue ? tuyaux et des bancs de ch?ne sculpt qui pouvaient accueillir 600 fid?les. Le b?timent portait la marque du style n?o-gothique populaire ailleurs au pays. L'?glise et son vast presbyt?re de style Second Empire conf?raient une autre touche de familiarit? et de respectabilit? ? cette ville-champignon qui ?voluait rapidement depuis ses origines.
