Protestant Churches In Quebec
C.W. Jefferys' notes about this picture from The Picture Gallery of Canadian History Volume 2
Most of the early Protestant churches in Lower Canada were built in the same style as the Catholic churches of the period: the classical or late Renaissance, with some trace of the influence of Wren and Gibbs, the English architects, whose work was inspired by the same ideals. The Protestant churches, however, were not built with the semi-circular apse or chancel, nor did they possess the side chapels, both characteristic features of the Catholic churches, and were simpler in plan and in their interior furnishings.
The Church of England and its rectory at Three Rivers were originally the Church and Presbytere of the Recollets, built during the French Regime.
The Cuthbert family chapel is built of stone, covered with rough-cast. It was restored some years ago under the direction of Roy Wilson, A.R.C.A., architect.
