History Biographical: 

All Saints’ Anglican Church (Nairn Centre, Ont.) is a church within the Rainbow Country Anglican Parish (Espanola, Ont.).

The community was known as Nelsonville in the early years until the township was officially declared in March 1896. Just a year later the All Saints' Anglican Church was built. The bell was part of an old C. N. R. engine and was donated by Mrs. Hazel Jefferies. The church and cemetery land was donated by J. B. Hammond. In these formative years, Nairn Centre was part of the Webbwood Mission and administered to by Rev. S.H. Morgan. 

In 1908, the building was painted and a basic parsonage was built for the incumbent to use when making visits to the neighbouring lumber camps.

The congregation celebrated its 50th anniversary on September 28, 1947. Two years later in 1949, the church received and had dedicated gifts in honour of loved ones. A cross and candlesticks were donated by Edwin Lahti in memory of his sister Elsi; a sanctuary rug was gifted by Mr. and Mrs. Hilliard Smith in memory of James Henry Smith; a font was donated by Mr. J.A. Bird; riddlestands and sanctuary light were donated by Rev. J.H. Watson. 

The All Saints' Anglican Church continued to be kept in good condition and renovated. In 1953 the basement was enlarged to the full size of the building. The floor was also painted.
