The stature of Ste. Anne’s church makes it a beacon of Tecumseh and without a doubt, the most iconic building in the township. It is a sight to behold for any tourist visiting the area, allowing one to truly grasp the age of the Tecumseh community.
The Parish of Ste. Anne’s was established in 1859 and the historic building bearing the same name would be completed in 1873.
After undergoing a comprehensive restoration project, the church was reopened in 2018. The steeple was fully retouched and returned to the top of the bell tower.
The restoration was made possible with the help of local philanthropist Al Quesnel, who donated $2.5 million for the project.
