Here you will note three pictures, all having the appearance of churches but, alas (if you're religious), only one is still used for its original purpose.
The first one is now a Neighbourhood Centre but used to be the Methodist Church. They all date from the 1850s to the 1890s so are a wonderful time capsule of what Beechworth once looked like.
The second one is the Roman Catholic church, the only one of the three here still in use whilst the last is now an antique shop. The land on which this former church now stands was used as a cemetery prior to 1856. Later those interred here were removed to the present Beechworth Cemetery where they were re-buried in a special Pioneer?s section. The Sunday School was erected in 1858; the church was completed in 1869.
