The Adventures of Spencer the Church Mouse


Tracy Barron moved the former Rawdon Gold Mines Union Church in Hants County, Nova Scotia, to a new location and repurposed as her new home. It now sits where her great-great grandparents’ farmhouse once stood, where four generations of her family were raised. One of the church’s gothic-style stained-glass windows was placed in memory of her great-grandparents who attended services at the church when it opened in 1908—and where her grandmother taught Sunday school. Her father attended Sunday school at the church, and Tracy and her siblings were baptized there. Soon after the church building arrived at its new home a family of mice came along and moved into the walls. This is the story of one of these very mice!
