St.Peter and St. John Church was built in 1883 By Simon Gibbons, Canada’s first Inuit priest. It is valued as one of the four surviving Gibbons churches best exemplify the style advocated by the Cambridge Camden Society in England. A simple wooden Medieval style church in rural Canada was the goal. The Church of St Peter and St John used Board and Batten construction. The most distinctive aspects of the design of the church are the helm roof of the bell tower, arched windows and rounded windows in the gable ends (given by Mabel Bell)
