Photograph of the church at Kasauli, from the Macnabb Collection (Col James Henry Erskine Reid): Album of miscellaneous views, taken in the 1880s. The owner of the photograph album from which this image comes was married in this church and a small label pasted on the front cover of the book reads: 'J.H.E. Reid. Book 1. 1875-1885'. Col J.H.E. Reid (D Coy, 1st K.O.B.) was married to Florence Macnabb, daughter of James William Macnabb.

Kasauli is a Hill Station in Himachal Pradesh. In 1842 a European military cantonment was founded here. The church, whose foundation stone was laid in 1844, is a prominent landmark in Kasauli . The structure is notable for its Gothic arches, buttresses and spires. The church is also said to have some impressive stained glass windows.
