Description du lieu patrimonial

The Chapel Hill Condominiums are a three storey Gothic Revival former church located at 039 Queen's Road, St. John's, NL. The designation is confined to the footprint of the building

Valeur patrimoniale

This building has been designated a Municipal Heritage Structure for its aesthetic and historical values.

Chapel Hill Condominiums are architecturally valuable as a fine example of the Victorian Gothic style. This style is reflected in the steep peaked roofs, decorative windows, gothic motifs and finial.

This building was the site of the last Congregational Church in St. John's. After 163 years as an Independent or Congregational Church, the congregation in 1936 decided to join the Presbyterian Church of Canada due to declining membership and difficulities in attracting ministers.
