St. Paul's United Church

When Aaron Price came to Aylmer in 1840 from St.Williams, in Norfolk, he was disappointed to find no Methodist Church. He found several families interested in forming a church and arranged to hold a service in the schoolhouse in 1845.

However, when the group assembled at the school, they found it locked. Undaunted, Mr Price mounted a tree stump and preached from there, inspiring the group to form a Methodist Church.

Services were held in a paint shop on the main street until a frame church was completed in 1847 on the southeast corner of Queen and Sydenham streets. By 1873 the congregation was outgrowing the little frame church and construction began at the present site completed in 1874.
