The Sanctuary Tour is an opportunity to visit all of Midway's Historic Churches and learn about their history. Included on the tour is the structure built for the original Pilgrim Baptist Church, which later became the Midway school for African-Americans and is now the residence of Molly Bradley. A Bluegrass Trust plaque has recently been installed there, as well.
