Description du lieu patrimonial

The Old Anglican Church and lot in Tulita (formerly Fort Norman) is a territorially designated historic site. It is a single story log building with a gable roof and wooden steeple.

Valeur patrimoniale

Built in c. 1880, this church is one of the oldest standing buildings in the Northwest Territories. The dovetailed log structure is an excellent example of the building style of the time, as well as fine craftsmanship. Its historical association with the Church of England is a testament to early Anglican missionary activities in Northern Canada. Legendary Anglican missionaries, such as Bishop William Carpenter Bompass, are also associated with the site. Located on the former Hudson's Bay lot in the historic centre of the community, the old Anglican Church speaks to the era of early contact between Europeans and northern Aboriginal people, and the establishment of the church, and commerce, that came with it.
