Slave Chapel in London, Ontario, Canada

The London Free Press (London, Ontario, Canada) has had several articles over the past few weeks regarding a chapel built in London in 1848 by fugitive slaves who had escaped to Canada. At this chapel, in 1858, John Brown spoke.  The chapel has become rather run-down over the years and is now threatened with demolition, but there is a fundraising campaign that is underway to raise money to move the chapel.

A selection of articles about the chapel:

Built of home burned brick between 1820 and 1823, on the Georgian style with classic columns. During the Civil War, Rosalie was the headquarters of the Union Army. The bed in which General Grant slept is still in the northeast bedroom, while the furniture in the northwest bedroom is the same that General Gresham used.
