It went through many changes, but eventually was moved to New Orleans. Although the history is muddled, it appears the players were the American Missionary Society (AMA) and the Freedmen's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church (now UMC).

The original Baldwin Site continued to serve as a school and refuge under the UMC (check their site).
