Researching in Sandwich

I happened to be in Sandwich, Ontario on a Sunday.  I thought that maybe the Sandwich Baptist Church might be holding services and that I might be able to meet people who knew the history of the church.  The church is where the “28” crossed into Canada and held a celebration.   I am so grateful that I got to meet Lana Tolbert, an artist and the secretary of the church.  I got to tour the church and learned about what they are doing in Windsor, Ontario to keep these stories alivesandwich church of the many freedom seekers who passed through Sandwich as the arrived in Canada.

Lana joined us for the September Living history event and spent Sunday touring Ripley, Ohio.  We hope to visit Lana this spring in Ontario and continue to learn about her work.
