    St. Giles Presbyterian Church

    785 Park Street S, Peterborough, ON.
    architect(s):
    constructed: 1954

    “One of the most interesting ways to appreciate this suburban church is by driving past in a car at night.  At a distance the timber structure conceals the interior. However, as you pass directly in front of the church it appears completely transparent and the interior lighting creates a dramatic effect.”
