Nestled between a working farm and an apple orchard, Benvoulin Heritage Park provides a visual reminder of life in early 19th Century. The church was built in 1892 reflecting Crathie Kirk in Aberdeen, Scotland; the home of Lord and Lady Aberdeen who donated generously to the construction to this peaceful country church.

Today this once rustic setting boasts country cottage gardens and manicured lawns. Outdoor weddings, performances and picnics are often held in the delightful gazebo or under the shade of the Red Maple Tree. There are memorial benches throughout the site providing a peaceful place to enjoy the unique setting.
