NOTICE

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO DESIGNATE PROPERTY OF CULTURAL HERITAGE VALUE OR INTEREST

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of The Corporation of the City of London intends to designate as a property of cultural heritage value or interest the following property in accordance with the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990:

Property Description
2442 Oxford St W (Kilworth United Church)
Publication Date
August 15, 2019
Last Date for Objection
September 16, 2019

The Kilworth United Church is a modest, vernacular stone church built in 1850-1851 with Gothic Revival stylistic details located at 2442 Oxford Street West at the west edge of the City of London. It is a single storey building with a simple rectangular plan and gable roof with belfry. The property is bounded on three sides by Komoka Provincial Park and on the north by Oxford Street West.

The Sanctuary of Kilworth United Church is the only room in the original structure and is constructed of locally-sourced, multi-coloured granite field stones that have been split to provide a flat exterior face and are arranged in loose courses with hand-hewn porous limestone quoins. The use of stone is rare because timber or brick were more common and accessible building materials and stone is a rare building material in the London area. The Gothic Revival style is evident in the pointed stained glass windows, installed in 1876 to replace what were believed to be the original clear-glass rectangular frames in the Sanctuary.

Originally the Kilworth Episcopal Methodist Church, Kilworth United Church has direct historical associations with Methodism, and contributes to our understanding of the popularity and development of Methodism in Ontario. The Church has direct associations with early pioneer families who made significant contributions to the settlement and development of the former Delaware Township and is a relic of Kilworth’s pioneer history, providing a tangible link to an historic settlement that is now part of the City of London.

The full statement explaining the cultural heritage value or interest and a description of the heritage attributes of the property can be seen in or obtained from the Office of the City Clerk, Room 308, City Hall, 300 Dufferin Avenue, London, Ontario during normal office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday).  Any person who objects to any intended designation must, within thirty days after the date of the first publication, serve on the City Clerk a notice of objection in writing, setting out the reason for the objection and all relevant facts. The Ontario Heritage Act provides that where a notice of objection has been served, the Council shall refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a hearing.

DATED at London, Ontario on August 15, 2019
Catharine Saunders, City Clerk
