Tyrone United Church Foundation Garden

edit this listing
The Foundation Garden has been built, planted and tended by many hands. The garden’s history begins with funds donated by Elizabeth Staples to Tyrone Church for a stained glass window in memory of her grandson, Otho Staples, who died in action in the First World War. In 1926, the Church Board decided to build a much-needed metal and concrete shed with the funds, and the stained glass window was not to be. The shed was used to shelter horses and carriages during church services (please take note of the tie rings in the concrete walls). From 1947 to 1950, the shed was used as an ice-skating rink. Some people remember church suppers and dances in the shed and even a greased pig contest!
