Heritage Hall

Built in 1880, Heritage Hall building served as the British Methodist Episcopal Church. Constructed in Gothic revival style with local limestone, it offered a place of safety and community for Guelph’s Black community, including descendants of runaway slaves. In 2012, the building was purchased by the Guelph Black Heritage Society to create a cultural, historical and social centre. (Photo: Guelph Black Heritage Society)
