If you’ve been following our stories on the future of Madill Church, you may be interested in a meeting this week organized by concerned local residents.
Anyone interested in discussing options for saving the historic church are welcome to attend the meeting on Wednesday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the community room upstairs at Robinsons Independent Grocer.
Madill Church was built in 1873 and is one of Huntsville’s oldest buildings. It is also one of the few examples of a pioneer square-timbered church remaining in Ontario.
On May 25, a representative from the Toronto United Church Council of the United Church of Canada (UCC) – the UCC owns Madill Church – was before Huntsville’s General Committee to confirm that the United Church has no further use for Madill Church. (Read the story on Doppler here.)
The Town has since sought public input via a survey (open until July 3 here) and has said that partners will need to come forward if the church is to be saved.
