Salem Chapel – British Methodist Episcopal Church National Historic Site

Salem Chapel was an important centre of abolitionist and civil rights activity and was the cornerstone of a growing African-American community in Niagara. Harriet Tubman, who attended the church, led many freedom seekers to St. Catharines. The chapel has an auditory-hall design typical of churches associated with the Underground Railroad movement. It also has many original artifacts on display.
