    town hall or possibly shared a building with one of the Methodist groups By the 1850s they both were building their own places of worship Now as for the Church of Scotland a little bit of background There was a plot of land on the west side of Main Street north of Dundas Street occupied by May s tavern in the 1830s a popular spot no doubt It was bought out by Flannigan who expanded a bit Flannigan s distillery was a great institution but as the story goes the better and cheaper Coburg whiskey at 10 per gallon soon knocked the bottom out of it Here about the year 1853 the property was bought by the congregation of the Church of Scotland and a new frame church was built called St Andrew s A distillery to a house of worship It could be said that the village exchanged one spirit for another About 1855 St Andrew s manse was built This property is the site of the McGregor Estate today The Beginnings of Knox The Free Church congregation in 1855 erected a stone church building called Knox Church This is the building that we now call the Gathering Hall It is said that some of the land was donated by Thomas Stock James McMonies No records for that property have been found At least 1 4 acre of land the Mill Street corner lot was purchased from Mr Henry Ferguson Graham in 1854 The manse was built in 1856 where our parking lot is today Original Knox church as it looked in the 1800 s The Free Church and the Church of Scotland congregations are our roots In 1877 they united to form one congregation known since then as Knox Church It is interesting to note that the first minister of St Andrew s Church of Scotland was buried in St Paul s cemetery at Nelson and the first minister of Knox was buried in the Nairn Church cemetery at Strabane In February of 1900 the trustees of the congregation of Knox Church Waterdown sold to John Owen McGregor of Waterdown the local doctor the property containing St Andrew s Church which had been used as Knox Sunday School and St Andrew s Manse Mr McGregor had the frame church building moved from Main Street back on the property where it existed up to the 1960s as a barn He added to and modified the old manse Somewhere within the McGregor House are the remains of the old St Andrew s manse Knox Grows The cornerstone of the new Knox Presbyterian church was laid on the afternoon of June 25 1901 Knox Church Waterdown held its dedication services on Sunday Nov 10 th 1901 and the new church was formally opened The new church cost nearly 5000 and supposedly would seat between 400 and 500 persons Knox church on it s 150th anniversary in 1981 and Knox church sanctuary in 1905 inset A major expansion was the building of
