While out driving with my sisters today we toured down memory lane on Highway # 2 from Kingston to Cardinal. We stopped at the Blue Church and walked through the cemetery.

This is a very old church, and a landmark on the St.Lawrence River between Brockville and Prescott. It is surrounded by a large cemetery with many ancient stones. Barbara Heck, known as the Mother of the Methodist Church in Canada is interred here.
