Sandwich First Baptist Church

Sandwich First Baptist Church, in Windsor, Ontario

Churches like that at Sandwich (now a suburb in Windsor, Ontario) had so many escaped slaves in the congregation that they kept a lookout during services. If slave-catchers were spotted, the refugees slipped out through a trap door in the floor.
