History and Architecture:

A foundation stone was laid on 30 September 1848. McElligott's quarry at the southern end of Fullarton Road supplied the stone for St. Michaels.

Gothic Revival Church built 1852, by W.Weir, southern nave added by E.Wright in 1863, vestry in 1871. Stone was quarried in Brownhill Creek Reserve and unfortunately the original (and typical colonial) wall finish with square raked joints has been removed.
