The Amherstburg Freedom Museum welcomes all people of all ages to experience the history of the Underground Railroad and the compassion and solidarity it took to make this network possible. The site includes Nazrey AME Church, the first Black National Historic Site and stop on the Underground Railroad and the Taylor Log Cabin from the same period that looks like the occupants just stepped out for a moment. It is entirely appropriate, and even necessary, that the Museum was established in Amherstburg. Amherstburg meant freedom, as the Canadian destination for many Black people escaping slavery in the United States. The Museum is uniquely situated to resource a profound history, steeped in its surroundings, to further extend public knowledge and enjoyment.
