St. Andrew's Parish

Beginning in 1845 the Reverend Andrew Jamieson, an Anglican missionary, served Saint John the Baptist Church on nearby Walpole Island, Ontario. In the early 1860s, Jamieson (1814 - 1885) established a mission in Algonac. He conducted morning services on Walpole Island and afternoon services in Algonac homes. The first class was confirmed in 1863, and four years later a church dedicated to Saint Andrew, was built. The Gothic Revival board-and-batten building stood on the corner of Green and Michigan streets.

This Neo-Gothic structure was dedicated on May 7, 1916. Frances Grey Smith, a founding member, donated the funds and Detroit architect George B. Mason designed the church. In 1892, Mason had planned Detroit's Trinity Episcopal Church, one of the first churches in the nation to reflect closely in design and detailing, medieval English churches. Saint Andrew's contains fourteen stained glass windows. The window over the altar depicts Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
