At a Glance

What happened to the travelers of the Underground Railroad when it crossed the US/Canadian border? Known for its education system and strong sense of community, learn about Southern Ontario’s Buxton National Historic Site from a descendant of the historic Elgin Settlement which was one of the final stops for the Underground Railroad. The settlement was founded in 1849 by Reverend William King, an abolitionist Presbyterian missionary, who moved to Canada in opposition of slavery in his home state of Louisiana.
