The Scots’ Presbyterian Church in George Street, Windsor, opened in 1842 will go under the demolisher’s hammer this week.
Rev C H Skerman, Presbyterian Minister, said on Monday that it was a sad day for Windsor Presbyterians, but the old church had no damp course and repeated attacks by white ants had made its demolition necessary.
Rev Skerman said that the demolition was being done by Addon Demolition Co of North Richmond at no cost to the church.
The last service was on March 12, 1966. Since then regular services have been held in the hall in the church grounds.
Work was started on the building in 1839 and completed some time in 1842. The first minister was Rev Mathew Adam, who conducted a school and gave a number of young men in the Hawkesbury area their education. His students erected a memorial in the church after his death in 1863.
In the notorious flood of 1867, the highest recorded to date, the water entered the church to a depth of two feet.
