    Notes:

    St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church

    The congregation was organized on December 1, 1834 by the Rev. F.W. Bindemann (1834-1838). Worship services were held in homes and barns until the Lutheran Rudel brothers erected a stone building for this purpose at the corner of what is now Queenston Road and Montrose Street. The premises were also made available to other congregations when they were first established in Preston. Land for a Lutheran church was purchased in 1837 and a frame church was built in 1839 on King Street on the site of the present St. Peter's. This fifty foot by forty foot church with its sixty foot tower was Preston's first church, called Christ Church, and was free for the use of all denominations. The building was used until replaced by the present-day stone church. The cornerstone for the new church was laid on August 21, 1887. The old frame church had been relocated before then to a lot on the corner of Queen and Church Streets where the congregation worshipped until the new stone church was ready for consecration in 1889. Weekly evening services in the English language began at that time.
    A new parsonage was built in 1913 on land behind the church, and renovations and improvements have been made to the interior of the church over the years. A new Christian Education wing was built in 1957 (cornerstone: January 27, 1957) and dedicated in 1958. Pastors who followed F.W. Bindemann were Revs. J. Huettner (1838-1849) who was the first regular pastor, F. Hildebrandt (1849-1850), Jacob Hoelsche (1850-1854), and Rev. Immanuel Wurster who served the congregation from 1854-1881. Rev. Wurster also ministered to St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hespeler.1

    ________________________________

    Michael Bergy erected in 1830 the first saw-mill and small foundry which he located a little north of the present R. Forbes Co. site, near where a small spring creek joins the Speed. This streamlet was in those days considerably larger than its present volume. The writer's father told of having fished trout from it in his boyhood. The ruins of the old saw-mill, which has been described by some as a pail-factory and foundry, was a favorite playhouse for the boys a few decades back. Mr. W. A. Kribs, ex M. P. P. recalls the presence of old foundry patterns lying about the place of his boyhood days.

    We must continue with the activities of Mr. Bergy who brought the second saw-mill in Bergy-town into existence. it was perhaps with the commencement of this second venture that the name of the place was changed to New Hope, but by the year 1840, Mr. Bergy's hope or interest in the second mill had faded to such an extent that he resold the property to Abram C. Clemens, from whom he had purchased the land. This second saw-mill was the one included in Jacob Hespeler's purchase. it was situated where another streamlet enters the Speed, the site being afterwards occupied by Mr. Hespeler's grist-mill near the stone dam which Hespeler placed in front of Bergy's wooden dam..
