Josiah Henson Museum of African-Canadian History
The property containing the Josiah Henson Museum of African-Canadian History is part of 81 hectares (200 acres) of land purchased in 1841 to establish the Dawn Settlement – a refuge for the many fugitives from slavery who escaped to Canada from the United States. The Josiah Henson Interpretive Centre, located on the site, houses a collection of 19th-century artifacts and rare books pertinent to the abolitionist era, as well as displays highlighting Reverend Josiah Henson’s life.
