Administrative history

Chalmers Presbyterian Church was built at Lochaber, Antigonish County, Nova Scotia in July 1869. It formed part of a pastorate with Loch Katrin. In 1925 Chalmers Presbyterian did not join the United Church of Canada. It was reduced to a Presbyterian mission and was serviced by student ministers in the summers after 1925. The Chalmers Church building burned to the ground 25 April 1950. The United Church in Lochaber welcomed the displaced parishioners and eventually the new church was called New Chalmers United Church.

Custodial history

Records were donated by Jock Inglis, in memory of the Inglis family of Lochaber, members of the Chalmers Presbyterian Church.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of two ledgers and one register. The ledgers record weekly collections, money disbursed and members of the congregation. The register records members of the congregation and important dates within the church, such as marriages and deaths. Miscellaneous papers include special event programs, a financial statement, an annual report and a fire insurance document.
