Notes
This church was built in 1848 on land donated by John U. Tyson. On 10 September 1851, the first German Baptist congregation in Canada was organized here by the Rev. August Rauschenbusch. This congregation was to become the forerunner of the Benton Street Baptist Church in Berlin/Kitchener. Worship services were held regularly at the church until 1955 when the community assumed ownership of the building and donated it to the Boy Scouts for use. The Boys Scouts continued to meet at this location until 1968, when the front entrance was damaged by fire. The church and cemetery are designated as a heritage building and property.

Notes
The Bridgeport Mill was built in 1830 by Jacob S. Shoemaker, and later sold to Elias Eby and Barnabas Devitt. It was destroyed by fire in 1970. Photographer and date unknown. Probable date believed to be around 1916, since the label on the back of the frame states Berlin, ON. Berlin officially became Kitchener in September 1916. Photo is in fair condition, but it is beginning to ripple under the glass. Decorated wooden frame is worn around corners.
