Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site is built on the site of the Black settlement that Rev. Josiah Henson helped found in 1841.  Today, thousands of people make pilgrimages to Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site to discover more about Josiah Henson, the Underground Railroad, and Ontario’s rich history.  Explore this fascinating Historic Site and learn about the unique heritage of Ontario’s Black community.
