Old St. Thomas Churchyard

The Old St. Thomas Anglican Church yard contains the elaborate funeral box monument of the Chisholm family, who were early settlers in the area. Vandalism and structural movement necessitated the rebuilding of this and other grave markers in the cemetery.

ERA was contracted to restore the monument and oversee the repair and restoration of broken and shifted markers. The monument was taken apart, then the damage was repaired and pieces that were not salvageable were replaced. A program was put in place to repair other gave markers in the churchyard.
