Inscription.
[on brick]
Exterior designated 1990. Of Italianate styling constructed in red brick (favoured by Methodist Church) between 1861 and 1863. Modeled after the Grace Methodist Church in Buffalo.

Significant features: round-headed windows, corbelled brickwork trim at various levels, pinnacles at the building corners, the centre tower and tall central spire and hooded dormers on three sides of the steeple for ventilation. Also significant is the many years of religious worship in this particular building and even longer on this property.
