 Building nameNotes
Item 1 of 1Leven Free ChurchLeven (N. B.): Free Church.—On Tuesday se'nnight this building was opened for service. The church exteriorly, is rather a handsome one, and the internal fittings are tasteful and substantial; but there is a defect in the inside which mars the effect of the design. The side walls are so low, and the gallery so close up to it, that the upper part of the windows are all but hidden. The architect was the late Mr. Hay. The entire cost of the building was £.3,100.
