“Members of the local Black community constructed the church building, joined its ranks as adult members and then fully participated in its life,” says Dr. Hebb. “Blacks worshipped weekly in a non-segregated congregation, sang in its well-known choir, acted as sextons, and also consistently served on its Vestry.”

What is perhaps even more telling for the 19th century is that Black and white were buried together in the adjoining cemetery, says Hebb. “To date, this is the only known instance, for this time period, of mixed burials in the Fredericton area, and in all of New Brunswick, and perhaps even the entire Maritimes.”
