The first black community was established in 1910 in Saskatchewan when a dozen families left the United States seeking freedom from discrimination, and found their way to Maidstone, Saskatchewan. Unique to the province and declared a provincial heritage site in 2019, the Shiloh Baptist Church was constructed of hand-hewn logs in 1912 by this immigrant community. The church, located approximately 28 km north east of Maidstone, has been extensively renovated and is open for self-guided tours. Be sure to sign the guest book on site. Donations are welcome.​
