Abolition / URR sites S. Ont.?

My famiy and I are visiting Blind River Ont. soon. We have a chance to visit several black heritage sites in S. Ont. on July 4 and 5th as we return to Indiana. But only have a day and a half. So far our plan is to visit:

July 4:
morning: Dresden - Uncle Tom's cabin (Josiah Henson)
afternoon: Chatham - Buxton Historic Site (Elgin Settlement);
John Brown site - First Baptist Church
evening: to Windsor

Tues. July 5 - Windsor
Freeman Walls Historic Site - Refugee Home Society
Sandwich First Baptist?
URR monument at Detroit River?

In Dresden is the Henson home the only site related to the Dawn settlement?

In Chatham is the WISH Centre worth a stop?

The North American Black Historical Museum in Amherstberg seems to have general info on slavery in North America but not so much local history. Any opinions about it? My interest is more about black abolition.
