Step back in time as you climb the hill to the historic Rockingham Church, a unique relic of pioneer days restored and maintained by the Friends of the Rockingham Church. Set among tall pines, the weathered wooden church is known for its simple but appealing architectural details: the round-headed windows and graceful steeple, its warm interior paneling and the original pump organ and curved pews. Surrounding gravestones mark the lives of early settlers, including John S.J. Watson, Rockingham’s founder and an early Warden of Renfrew County.

 

Formerly known as St. Leonard’s Anglican Church, the building was saved from demolition in the mid-1990s and is maintained by the Friends of the Rockingham Church, Inc.
