English:This elegant church marks the growth of Presbyterianism and the Kirk of Scotland in New Brunswick. Built in 1821-1824, the structure successfully combines the American meeting house form with the British Palladian style. The building's fine proportions and classical details complement its simple, symmetrical plan. The original box pews and two-tiered pulpit, bird's-eye maple columns and decorative mouldings create a rich interior. The carved green oak on the steeple symbolizes Greenock, the Scottish home of the church's benefactor, Christopher Scott.
French:Cette élégante église témoigne de l'essor de la tradition presbytérienne et de la Kirk d' Écosse au Nouveau-Brunswick. Construit entre 1821 et 1824, l'édifice marie la forme du "meeting house" américain et le style palladien britannique. Les proportions harmonieuses et les détails classiques mettent en valeur un plan simple et symétrique. Les bancs en caisson, la chaire à deux niveaux, les colonnes d'érable moucheté et les moulures décoratives concourent à la richesse de l'intérieur. Le chêne vert sculpté sur la flèche symbolise Greenock, village d'Écosse où habitait le bienfaiteur de l'église, Christopher Scott.
