A Short History:
The Anglican Church came to the Cardinal area in 1828. Richard Duncan Fraser, the son of Loyalists, donated a parcel of land 1 mile east of the present village to build a church and cemetery. That St. Paul’s cemetery is still in use today. The church, built of local field stone was erected in 1833 under Rev. J.G. Weagant a former Lutheran. With the advent of the Benson Starch Co the village started to grow and it was decided to build a new St. Paul’s Church in Cardinal. This new church was built in 1872 and the older church demolished. The parish today forms the eastern boundary of the Diocese of Ontario.
