St Elizabeth of Hungary Church – originally St Phillip’s Anglican Church

St Elizabeth of Hungary R.C. Church, originally St Phillip’s Anglican Church, was once located at Spadina Ave and Dundas St W (on the southwest corner) in the Chinatown neighbourhood of Toronto.

When the church was built in 1884, it cost $17,000 to construct. In the mid-1940s, it became St Elizabeth of Hungary R.C. Church. The structure was demolished in the late 1980s, and today, the corner is home to the Dragon City Mall.
