St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Kirk
Popularly known as the Scots’ Kirk, this structure sits at the end of the Church Street. It was constructed in 1831 with assistance from the Freemasons. Two features for which the church is well known are its bell, which was cast in Glasgow in 1833, and its clock, which is very much an antique. Remembering its heritage, the church, on its 150th anniversary, held a ceremony in honor of the Freemasons.
