About

One of the oldest buildings is St. Michael’s and All Angels Church situated at Elton Hill and this beautiful granite church was built in 1893 and took 30 years to complete. Designed by New Zealander, Mr. B. W. Mountfort, the church was constructed with stones taken from Buli Sim Sim and the white stones that adorn the windows and doors were from Hong Kong. St. Michael’s and All Angels Church was one of Sabah’s few surviving pre-warstone building and was recognized as one of the world’s heritage since 2005. The beautiful stained glass windows in the church were donated by Australians to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. The Church was also one of the many places where the Prisoners of War who trekked the Sandakan Death March spent a night before continuing the march. The beautiful stained glass windows found here were donated by Australians to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II. The Church had avoided major damage during World War II in the 1940s and remains one of the very few stone buildings in the whole of Sabah.
