About

Come view the commemorative plaque to Rev. Richard Preston, founder of the African United Baptist Association in 1854.

Come view the commemorative plaque to Rev. Richard Preston, founder of the African United Baptist Association in 1854. Originally called the African Baptist Association, the AUBA is Canada’s oldest Black organization.

Their first meeting was held at Granville Mountain. Its creation under the leadership of Reverend Preston brought together all of the existing Black Baptist churches in Nova Scotia and gave them a platform by which to address the social, economic, and educational issues of the day.
