Cape Breton County Churches


St. George's Anglican Church
Sydney, Nova Scotia

This little church was built in 1790 for use as a garrison chapel for troops and residents in the Sydney area. Due to major deterioration of the stone walls, it was entirely rebuilt in 1859. An interesting, though not authenticated, feature is The Bishop's Chair. It is said that it came from the wardroom of the HMS Victory and it serves as a memento of the time Lord Nelson and his crew once attended service at St. George's.
