A: Primary Significance
St. Luke’s Home was founded as the city’s first hospital by Reverend Clinton and Sister Frances of the Anglican Church. In 1923, the original building was torn down and replaced with the present building by Sharp and Thompson in the English Arts and Crafts style.
The quiet stucco and frame facade, the square-cut bay window and the steeply-pitched gable roof are typical of the late 19th century English country homes which inspired this design.
Now known as St Luke’s Court, it was refurbished and established as a retirement home and reopened in 1986. There are 9 units, common rooms, a courtyard garden and elevator.
