Nazrey Methodist Church, Amherstburg, Ontario

Nazrey Methodist Church is a simple fieldstone chapel (now part of the North American Black Historical Museum) in Amherstburg, Ontario. The town faces Detroit and the United States across the river, and it was here that many Black refugees stopped when they first arrived in Canada. Churches like this were on the front line in serving the incoming flood of penniless refugees.
