Opened in 1750, this is Canada's oldest Protestant church and the burial site of many colonial notables. It played a pivotal role during the 1917 Halifax Explosion, as the vestry was used as a makeshift hospital. Evidence of the damage done to the building can be seen in the still-broken Explosion Window and debris embedded above the Memorial Doors. Designated as a National Historic Site, St. Paul's remains an active church. A pew is always reserved for Queen Elizabeth
at Sunday morning services, and other out-of-town worshippers are welcome as well: there's a service each Wednesday at 11 am and Sunday services are at 9 and 11 from September through May and at 10 between June and August.
