Little Dutch Church, 2393 Brunswick St., Halifax

Built at the corner of Brunswick and Gerrish streets in Halifax around 1755, the Little Dutch Church was used as a meeting house for German-speaking Lutherans.

It was moved in 1756. Four years later a steeple was added and it was dedicated as a church.

Its significance as a provincial heritage site is partly related to the fact that the majority of non-British Protestant immigrants to Halifax between 1749 and 1752 were German-speaking Lutherans.
