Sheffield Park Black History and Cultural Museum Tour

August 30, 2022: thirty-five PROBUS members took a self-guided tour of the Sheffield Park Black History Museum.

Co-owner Carolynn Wilson was there to welcome the group, and helping her was Janine.
The self-guided tour began in the large exhibit hall of African Beginnings, and took us through the passage on the slave ships...
Each patch on the quilts had instructions for those escaping to Canada on the Underground Railroad.
The second stop along the Heritage Walk was an example of an Abolitionist's house.
Exhibits were house in the many buildings along the Heritage pathway.
Pictured here is the Great Lakes Shipping exhibit where the black settlers contribution to the local shipping industry were highlighted.
More fantastic model ships...
Members could walk through a typical pioneer settlers home
The one-room schoolhouse was open to walk through..
The last stop on the tour, where members could view the large exhibit of dolls and other black memorabilia.
