The Old Stone Church was fairly exclusive in its early days but shortly after being completed the Butter Church was abandoned after only 10 years of service in 1880 in favour of St. Ann’s Church at Tzouhalem.
Not a house to any congregation, the Butter Church fell Stone Island Shirts into disrepair. The doors and the attractive stained glass windows are actually installed in St. Paul’s Church on Saltspring Island, the place it nonetheless exists in the present day. The Outdated Stone Church is a stupendous historic site with a beautiful history; it continues to serve as a magnificent landmark to the Cowichan Valley, and a visible representation of the struggles, hardships, spirituality, and generosity of it’s local Native Indian population.
