Upsala - Not in Sweden


On a recent loooong drive between Winnipeg and Toronto, I noted an abandoned church in Upsala, Ontario. On our way back, I stopped briefly to take a long distance photo of the church.

I believe this is/was a Catholic church.

Upsala is a well known city and region in Sweden. Upsala, Ontario wasn't settled by Swedes but by 1900 there was a strong Swedish influence in the town and many Scandinavians lived in and around the town.

  1. Didn't they let you get closer? I've been to the other Upsala. I didn't know that there was one in Canada.

  2. The old church looks great in that sea of yellow. Nice to see the bell still in the tower.
