Spring Street Methodist Church
This elegant brick church struck me as unusual as the taller tower, which is on the corner of the block, is at 45 degrees to the main building. It also has three main doors and I understand a sloped (theatre) floor, so I'm curious to take a peak inside sometime.
It was built in 1889 as a Methodist Church, but in the Church Union, when the Canadian Methodists, and Presbyterians merged, it would have been renamed as a United Church. Interestingly, there is also an active Presbyterian congregation in Westport - one of the third that declined merging in 1925.
