Saint Philip's African Orthodox Church

Whitney Pier, Canada

DESCRIPTION OF HISTORIC PLACE St. Philip's African Orthodox Church is located on Hankard Street in the area of Sydney, Cape Breton known as Whitney Pier. This wooden church with Gothic style elements was built between 1900 and 1915. The building and property are located in the provincial designation. HERITAGE VALUE St. Philip's African Orthodox Church is valued for its role in preserving Nova Scotia's West Indian heritage and for its association with the industrialization of Nova Scotia. Over the years, St. Philip's has become one of the most important institutions in the Black community of Sydney; a community which originated mainly in the West Indies (Barbados) and whose members emigrated to Sydney during Cape Breton's industrial boom of the early 20th century. The African Orthodox Church was originated by George Alexander McGuire in the United States in the early 1920s. Born in Antigua, McGuire traveled to the United States in 1892 and became a minster with the Episcopal Church of America. In 1913 he returned to Antigua to serve in his boyhood parish. Aware of the rising black consciousness following World War I, McGuire returned to the United States with the intention of starting an Independant Black Church. This action coincided with the advent of the radical Marcus Garvey Black Movement in the United States. Garvey, born in Jamaica, led what was to be the largest and most successful mass movement of Black people in the history of the United States. In the early 1920s, Garvey initiated the Universal Negro Improvement Association which was designed to work towards political, economic and religious independance of Blacks in America, the West Indies and Africa. Garvey was know to have crusaded in Sydney in the early 1920s and that several branches of the UNIA were active in industrial Cape Breton, several of which continue to the present time. In the formative years of the UNIA, Reverend McGuire was invited by Marcus Garvey to be chaplain of the organization. This acceptance by McGuire laid the groundwork for the African Orthodox Church.

Greenville United Baptist Church

Greenville, Canada

DESCRIPTION OF HISTORIC PLACE The Greenville African Baptist Church is a simple Vernacular style building that was built in 1853 by and for the people of Greenville, Yarmouth County, NS - a small community northeast of the Town of Yarmouth. Municipal HERITAGE VALUE The Greenville African Baptist Church is valued as the oldest church still standing that was built for a Black community in Yarmouth County and for its association with Rev. David Dies, an early Deacon of the church. It is also valued for its unique Vernacular style of architecture. The Greenville African Baptist Church was built in 1853 by and for the Black residents of this community. The land on which the church was built was owned at the time by George Gideon Dies, a lay member of the church, who deeded it to the Trustees of the African Church at Greenville in 1869. The Rev. David Dies, brother of George G. Dies, served as Pastor to this community for many years and lived to the memorable age of one hundred and ten years. The Vernacular style of this church is unique in that much of its framing is on the exterior of the building. It is otherwise a simple, relatively unadorned, front gabled building of rectangular massing.
