A provincially designated Historic Site.

In front of the Inglewood United Baptist Church (org. 1874) at 321 Bay Road, you’ll find a monument commemorating Rev. David George and Rev. Richard Preston.

Reverend George, founder of the Silver Bluff Church, South Carolina, USA, escaped slavery during the American Revolution and brought his faith to Nova Scotia. 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).
