St. Andrew’s Church, the church on the hill, has been a congregation in Fergus since 1834. The present building dates from 1862. The Historical Marker to the west of the building is in both Gaelic and English. Buried in the church cemetery is George Clephane, about whom his sister, Elizabeth Clephane wrote the lyrics to the hymn “There were ninety and nine”.
