Church / Denomination: The church was built in 1882 on land donated by George W. Tomlinson, and closed during the 1940s. The church step (concrete block) is all that remains of the church and two back corner stones for the church. Some large rocks have been put on-top of the concrete block from off site. The church was taken down and the pastor's son is said to have used the wood to build his house.

Registered to Baldwin Abandoned Cemetery. The property is now privately owned and only one headstone remains. The land measures 247x59 and went to the original river banks. There are stories of stones washing into the river and being stolen by tourists. Also, there was a Toronto police officer that returned a stone but it's unknown where it ended up.
