This United church at Gilbert Plains, in the Municipality of Gilbert Plains, was constructed between 1903 and 1904 of bricks from the Eastman Brothers Brick Yard. Originally a Presbyterian church, the congregation united with the one for a nearby Methodist church in July 1918, thereby becoming St. Paul’s United Church.
