Saint Mary’s Church is the largest wooden church in North America. Located in Church Point in the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region, this building was constructed over a two-year period from 1903 to 1905.
Not only a historical place of worship, Saint Mary’s is also a museum and features a fine collection of church vestments, furnishings, documents and photographs. Motorcycle enthusiasts should drop in to see the painting that resembles a biker’s face on the ceiling.
After your visit to the church, you can browse through our gift shop where you will find a range of souvenirs and religious items to take home as mementos of your visit.
