Ranelagh St James Anglican
The first church at Ranelagh was constructed out of bark but was replaced in 1853 with a brick church which was consecrated in 1854. The next building was a Hunter designed timber church which was built at a cost of 360 pounds. Unfortunately this was destroyed by bushfires in 1885.
The current church was designed by James Fagg and built at a cost of 500 pounds and was consecrated by Bishop Montgomery on November 8th 1896.
This stunning little church is now heritage listed.
