This Church marked the last stop on the Underground Railway for slaves fleeing the US for freedom. Several plaques on site that tell the story of the slaves and how Harriet Tubman never lost a passenger.

If possible, try to make arrangements for a tour otherwise you will probably only get to see the outside of the building. The tour was obviously passionate about the church and its history and had vast knowledge of it. I am so glad we got to see this place.

This church is a historical site, it was the last stop on the under ground railway for the escaped slaves, back in the days, it has a lovely statue of harriet tubman in the back yard , inside you will find many facinnating articles on the history of the families of the black community

This church was the last stop of the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman is closely tied to this church. Although we didn't get to go in, it was nice to see a part of history
