Phyllis Vernon Painting

St. Mary’s Catholic Church, King Township

My painting of St. Mary’s Church in King Township near Nobleton, Ontario, is one of a series of local historic sites.  Built in 1855, the church served the numerous Irish émigrés who settled in the area following the potato famine of 1847, some of whom are buried in the adjacent cemetery.  A number of residents of King have responded to this painting with pleasure as it brings back memories of their family history.
