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
This church was built in 1880 and was then covered with red brick in 1889, which is the year noted on the building. The church was used until 1916 and remained closed until 1936 when Margaret Ross purchased it to be used as a personal residence. She resided in the building until her death in 1971. The building sat neglected over the following decade and was eventually deemed unsafe. It was demolished in 1981. This photograph appeared on page four of the 1964 Waterloo Historical Society annual volume.
