Chapel of St. James-the-Less

Chapel of St. James-the-Less

The Chapel of St. James-the-Less sits atop a knoll at the highest point in the St. James Cemetery. In its vigorous, harmonious composition, this small funeral chapel is a splendid example of Victorian Gothic design. Its sense of strength and spirituality is derived from the subtle contrast of its stone walls, enveloping roofs, and soaring spire. Erected in 1860 and opened in 1861, the chapel was designed by Frederick William Cumberland and Storm, one of Toronto's leading 19th-century architectural firms.
