About Ellis Chapel

In 1861, two years after Edward and Mary Ellis, pioneer settlers in Puslinch Township, gave land to the Wesleyan Methodist Church, a handsome church of random-faced field stone was erected. Much of the material was found in surrounding fields and the erection of the building was undertaken by members of the local community.

When road systems improved and families began to drift into town churches, the chapel became a non-denominational Sunday school but eventually fell into disuse and was boarded up.

Some 100 years after the building of Ellis Chapel, descendants of the original pioneer families formed a Board of Trustees and the restoration of the chapel began. In August 1963, the newly-restored building was officially open and became once again a place of worship, reflection and historical significance.
