Reverend Preston, founder of the Cornwallis Street Baptist Church, organized the African Baptist Churches into the African Baptist Association (ABA) in 1854. This organization is now known as the African United Baptist Association (AUBA). Source: African Nova Scotian Tourism Guide Historical Black Settlements in Nova Scotia (Google Map)
