St. John's Angelical Church, Lunenburg, NS

One of the things I enjoyed most about Lunenburg were the churches. I visited four or five--and each one encouraged my photography.

All of the churches had similar ceilings. Apparently, these churches were built by the local fishermen who had little experience constructing churches. So, they decided that the strongest roofs would be something like an inverted wooden ship. #5 and #10 might best exhibit that feature of the ceiling.

Here are some favorites from my visit to St. John's Anglican Church (opened in 1754):

Thanks again for looking...there are more churches of Lunenburg to process!
