The Portland Presbyterian Church.

(National Advocate - 16 October 1915)  "New Presbyterian Church at Portland. A new Presbyterian Church is to be opened tomorrow at Portland. The opening ceremonies will be performed by the State Moderator, the Rt. Rev. R. Scott West, assisted by the Moderator of the Bathurst Presbytery, the Rev. J. H. Robertson, of Bathurst. Some time ago it will be remembered that the Portland Church was totally, destroyed by fire, but in spite of the war the Portland people have succeeded in erecting a new building, much better than that which they lost."
