The Seaview African United Baptist Church
Africville Museum, Africville Road, Halifax, NS, Canada

The church was the heart of Africville. It was located at the village centre and was a place for both church-goers and other community members as it held main civic events, including weddings, funerals and baptisms. The church you see today is a replica of the original, which symbolizes Canadian history’s dark past. The original building was destroyed in 1967 when the community was razed for industrial development.
