Zion United Baptist Church

Truro, Canada

HERITAGE VALUE Spiritual and Religious Value Zion Baptist Church is the spiritual home to a community whose roots in Truro extend back to the late nineteenth century. The congregation’s shared historical experiences forged a strong sense of community among its members, and led them in 1896 to seek separation from the Baptist churches they had originally worshipped with in Truro. This church building is a symbol of that sense of community, the events that led to the establishment of the church, and the history of the congregation since. Historic Value Zion Baptist is valued for its association with the African-Canadian community that settled in Truro in the nineteenth century, largely as labourers, during the period of construction of the railways and later in railway operations. The community initially worshipped at First Baptist Church and its daughter congregation of Immanuel Baptist Church. In 1896 they sought separation and organized into a new congregation, Zion Baptist, worshipping in rented quarters until construction of this building was completed in 1898. The first pastor of Zion Baptist, Rev. Abraham Clements, took up his responsibilities as regular pastor in 1897. The church is also valued for its associations with other historical figures. Portia White (1910-1968), the first African-Canadian woman to win international acclaim, was born in Truro to a musical family and sang in the choir of this church where her father was pastor. Her career as a soloist and educator became a source of pride for all Canadians, and the tree sculpture in front of the church honours her memory and accomplishments. A long-time member of this congregation, Stanley (Chook) Maxwell (1935-2001), was one of the first black men to play professional hockey, serving on a number of Canadian and American hockey teams in the 1950s and 1960s. Maxwell was also locally prominent in baseball, and was elected into the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame.

Victoria Road United Baptist Church

Dartmouth, Canada

DESCRIPTION OF HISTORIC PLACE Victoria Road United Baptist Church is a simple wood framed Gothic style chapel that was built in 1853. It is located across the street from the cemetery for Christ Church on Victoria Road, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. HERITAGE VALUE Victoria Road United Baptist Church is valued for its association with the religious history of many of the Black immigrants in Dartmouth. In the late 1700s and early 1800s many Black Loyalists settled in Nova Scotia following the American Revolution. Others, such as the Maroons who left Jamaica following the over-throw in 1796 of the Maroon government by the Jamaican government supported by British colonists, also settled in the Dartmouth area, encouraged by the provincial government. Following the end of the War of 1812 roughly 2,000 Black refugees from the United States settled in the Maritime Provinces, including in the Dartmouth area. It is the descendants of these groups who founded the congregation that came to found the Victoria Road United Baptist Church. Victoria Road United Baptist Church is also valued for its association with Christ Church. Originally Victoria Road United Baptist Church was built in 1853 as a Sunday school hall for nearby Christ Church, the predominant Anglican Church in Dartmouth at the time. In 1905 Christ Church donated the building to the local Black Baptist congregation. The congregation had established a meeting house and cemetery on what was called Coloured Meeting House Road, which is known today as Crichton Avenue. The entire Sunday School building was lifted from its foundations, placed on rollers and hauled by horses for several blocks to its present location on Victoria Road. Today the church is still a religious and community centre for many families in Dartmouth. Architecturally, Victoria Road United Baptist Church is valued for its Gothic Revival style. The chapel is a simple wood framed building with a gable roof and round headed windows. The church features a steeply pitched false façade to the left of the main entrance. This secondary entrance has a simple pediment style decoration above the doorway. The Gothic Revival style is reflected in the are the windows which include a lancet window with decorative hood moulding on the front elevation and thick fretwork in a wavy pattern along the eves. The building commands attention on the street. reflected in the are the windows which include a lancet window with decorative hood moulding on the front elevation and thick fretwork in a wavy pattern along the eves.

Tracadie United Baptist Church

Monastery, Canada

Informal prayer and worship meetings were formed and the community residents took turns hosting services each week out of their homes. Eventually a sanctuary was constructed from an old farmhouse in the community of Upper Big Tracadie (UBT) and was named “Tracadie Church.” For reasons unknown, the structure was moved from UBT to Tracadie Road (Highway #16) in Monastery (Circa 1822). Within the year, unknown controversy from the locals forced another move of the structurally compromised building to the Antigonish/Guysborough border of Tracadie Road where the church stands to this present day. The Tracadie Church of God has been the fabric and foundation binding this region together for almost two and a half centuries. TUBC is a house of worship with traditional values that WELCOMES EVERYONE from EVERYWHERE, from EVERY walk of life. We offer prayer, not judgment! If you’re seeking a church family, prayer, support, guidance and fellowship, we invite you to come visit us. Perhaps you have given up on church. Maybe you have attended church before, but you were not able to find your place, understand the message clearly, or connect with the people in that church. We desire to be a church where the un-churched, the formerly churched, and those wanting to know more about God can find hope, restoration, connect with new friends, discover God's plan for their life, and grow spiritually. At TUBC, we seek to develop full-time followers of Christ by implementing three simple principles: Faith, Hope and LOVE. ~Authored by S. Crawford Source: Tracadie United Baptist Church www.online.church123.com/tracadieunitedbaptistchurch/welcome.htm ------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION OF HISTORIC PLACE Tracadie United Baptist Church is a Gothic Revival style church located at 274 Highway #16 Monastery, Nova Scotia. The church was built on the current border between Antigonish County and Guysborough County and serves both counties. The building and surrounding property are included in the municipal designation. HERITAGE VALUE Tracadie United Baptist Church is valued for its association as the second oldest African Nova Scotian congregation in Nova Scotia. In 1787, Black Loyalists first settled in the Tracadie district. They had escaped slavery and war in the Southern colonies to settle in Nova Scotia where they continued to face many difficulties. They were restricted from worshiping at the area’s existing churches and had to travel great distances to be baptized and have their spiritual needs met. As a result, these Black Loyalists began holding their own services where space was available, most often in private homes. After some years a decision was made to build their own church. Construction of this church was begun in Tracadie in 1821. Tracadie United Baptist Church is valued for its association with preacher, David Nutter who arrived in the Tracadie district about 1821. His dynamic personality and the conviction of his message was so compelling that many of the community became followers of the Baptist faith. With the congregation established, a church was built under the name Tracadie United Baptist Church. Tracadie United Baptist Church is a valued symbol of African Nova Scotian pride, accomplishment, freedom and unity. Despite hardship, and segregation, the congregation organized and maintained a church themselves. Today, the Tracadie United Baptist Church continues to hold regular services and act as an instrument of spiritual renewal and beacon of community spirit. Tracadie United Baptist Church is valued as an example of Gothic Revival style churches in late nineteenth-century Nova Scotia. The church’s simple construction is evident in its one-and-a-half storey design, gable roof and symmetrical three-bay façade. Tracadie United Baptist Church also features Gothic elements such as Gothic windows with pointed arches.

Beechville Baptist Church

Beechville, Canada

We’ve seen the transformation hundreds of times - people who came to us full of doubt and uncertainty become secure in the knowledge of their rightful place in God’s great kingdom. The change may start slowly - in a Bible Study class or choir participation, perhaps - but once it begins, it picks up speed. The good works, shared experiences, time spent in prayer - all bring us closer to our highest calling. Source: Beechville Baptist Church http://www.beechvillebaptistchurch.ca/
