This tiny insert photo of St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg was taken late Christmas Eve, 2000 A.D. In the early morning hours of November 1, 2001, Lunenburg firefighters responded to what would be their 23rd, and final call on one of the most hectic Halloween nights in the town’s history.
This one involved St. John’s Anglican Church, a hallowed hall of worship in the town for nearly 250 years and one of Canada’s National Historic Sites. It was almost totally destroyed and required $5.6 to restore.
The larger photo is a part of the rotunda in the eastern part of the church. This ceiling was originally painted in 1900 and fixed with gold-leaf stars as seen above. Thing is, the pattern of stars in not random but coincides with astronomical fact!
