St James was built about 1839 with funds raised in parishes in Ireland and Scotland and a gift from the Duchess of Leeds. It was the first cobblestone building by Levi Broughton in Paris who went on to build another dozen cobblestone houses in the area that still stand. A fieldstone chancel was added in 1863 and the five-sided vestible erected in 1989-90.

St. James' received their present pipe organ in 1895, and the parish hall was officially opened by the Most Rev'd David Williams, fourth Bishop of Huron, in 1913.
