description After architect William Critchlow Harris, A.R.C.A., died in 1913 his brother Robert, the celebrated portrait painter, wrote his sister Sarah, "What a number of churches he designed, and how fine many of them are! That was work he really liked, that's one comfort." Although William Harris designed many dwelling houses and public buildings, his chief distinction as an architect was as a designer of churches. Of the twenty constructed, or rebuilt, to his plans in Prince Edward Island sixteen remain. The Prince Edward Island landscape would not be the same without them.
