On a busy street in Richmond Hill sits Headford United Church. It's history can be traced back to 1850 when on this site stood a wooden chapel called Leeks Chapel, a Methodist Episcopal Church. By 1882 the congregation had outgrown the original building and the present brick church was built on the same site to replace it. With the union of the Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalists in 1925, Headford became a member of the United Church of Canada. The original Cemetery also sits well preserved on this site behind the Church.

electricfuneral I visited this location yesterday. I believe the new owners were renovating the interior. There was a man inside who was kind enough to let me take a few shots. When I went to the back I noticed each stone had the same last name. The original cemetery must have been moved. A family walked up to me and asked why I was in their cemetery. It was quite strange. I do not suggest visiting this location.

crazy_cyclist This was my church. The United Church congregation has disbanded and sold the building to a Korean Church. The last service of the United Church congregation was Oct 2015.
