In Local News:

Haldimand Council has committed $100,000 to restore and preserve the cemetery in Canfield where many black settlers are burried. It is the last physical evidence of a significant community of freedom seekers who arrived there on the Underground Railroad in the mid-1800s. Once land transfers/easement agreements are in place, the county hopes to form a committee of descendants and community members to determine other ways of sharing this important local history.

The Heritage Centre in Cayuga is hosting the following events for 2023:

Tuesday, Feb. 7 (6 p.m.) – Road to FreedomIn honour of Black History Month, this presentation focuses on the history of the Underground Railroad and Black settlement in Haldimand County.

Tuesday, Feb. 21 (6 p.m.) – Wrapped in SecretsThis presentation details how quilts and other objects were used to help escaping slaves find their way to freedom and, later in the 20th century, how secret messages were sent using quilts during WWI and WWII.
