- THE HISTORY OF ROSEBANK CHURCH
Rosebank Church was built about 1846 in Admaston Township on Henry Hutton's farm. The logs were donated by Rowland Crozier. Shingles were hand shaven by Mr. Hanawel and Miles Brown. The neighbours united to build the church. Peter Dalgleish named the church "Rosebank" after the ship on which he had crossed the ocean from Scotland. It was a Methodist Church with Rev. A. Krupp as the first minister and J.M. Briscoe chairman of the official board. Sunday School was organized by Henry Hutton, Elisha Francis and Xavier Plaunt. Services were held here until union in 1925 with the Northcote congregation of the Admaston Pastoral Charge of the United Church.
