St. George's Church - Halifax

St. George’s Church -The Round Church- was built in 1800-1801 to replace the over-crowded Little Dutch Church.  Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, who was then in command at the Citadel, took an enthusiastic interest in the project.  It was the Prince who pushed for the very fashionable round design and even managed to get his father, George III, to pony up for his church in far-away Halifax. St. George’s was a grand ecclesiastical theatre, with its stacked semi-circular galleries and slave’s gallery up in the dome itself…closer thee to thy maker!  Happily, St. George’s has been raised again and restored to perfect detail after the tragic fire of 1995.
