Little Dutch Church, Halifax

The Little Dutch Church owes its existence to the arrival of upwards of 3000 Rhineland Lutherans in Halifax in the 1750s. Architecturally, St. George’ (known even then as the Little Dutch Church) bespoke an austere kind of pioneer. Even the adding of a steeple in 1760, to accommodate the bell taken from the French Convent after the fall of Louisbourg, was modestly understated.  By the end of the 18th century the congregation grew in numbers and worldly outlook, and the Little Dutch Church was replaced by a new and decidedly ostentatious St. George’s Church…but it still stands strong in The Old Burying Grounds.
