Heritage Chapel, O'Leary

Here's the little church in the park behind the PEI Potato Museum in O'Leary.  Since it was built in 1879/1880 it has been used by three different congregations:  Knutsford Bible Christian, O'Leary Methodist and St. Theresa's Catholic Mission Church.  The church was originally built in Knutsford on the O'Leary Road where the Knutsford Cemetery is today.  The land for the cemetery was donated by my great-great-great-grandfather Captain John Silliker - he died in 1871 - his descendants donated the wood to build the church.

The following are photos I took last Sunday when I visited the church with my parents.
