LOYALIST MEMORIAL CHURCH
The first Anglicans of Adolphustown were Loyalists who arrived in 1784. Early services were conducted at the home of Nicholas Hagerman by the Rev John Langhorn who, from 1787 to 1813, was the resident missionary for the Townships of Ernesttown and Fredericksburgh. In 1822 a frame church named ST Paul's was built, which still stands just west of this site. In that year Adolphustown became a mission and its first resident clergyman, the Rev Job Deacon, served until 1850. The present Church of St Alban-the-Martyr, erected 1884-88, was built through public subscriptions as a memorial to the Loyalists of the area.
