Salem Chapel




8"X11" Watercolour on paper


Time to pull one from the archives again. The Salem Chapel or British Methodist Episcopal Church was once headquarters to the Underground Railroad, the network that guided slaves from the United States to freedom in Canada. It was Harriet Tubman's church. It sits on a shabby run-down section of Geneva Street in St. Catharines right across the street from the Golden Brothers Sports Bar, the subject of an earlier post.
