We have an amazing array of historical sites in Jamaica. Are you surprise? You shouldn't be.

Rose Hall Great House

If you had read the history of Jamaica, you would have certainly picked up a few pointers.

In fact, I am tempted to go as far as to say that Jamaica-in total, probably could be designated a historical site!- but I won't :-)

Sadly though, just like everywhere else in the world where modernization is taking the fast track, technology and globalization threatens them - those core things that provides invaluable insight to our history and what defines us as truly Jamaican.

But thankfully, for the most part- and at least for now, these sites remains grounded. This is definitely one thing I would not hesitate to commend the authorities on.

By the way, I was elated [although not alarmed] to find out my alma mater, Mannings' High School, was designated one of the historical sites here in Jamaica. The history of that school is another story.

As I said earlier, we have lots of them.

The list includes:

  • Aqueducts and Bridges
  • Clock Towers
  • Forts
  • Free Villages
  • Lighthouses
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Statues
  • Great Houses
  • Historic Schools and Districts
  • Theaters
  • Mineral Spas
  • Sugar Works
  • Railway Stations
  • and of course Caves!

They are all special and significant in their own way, but if you asked me the top 10, most popular of these historical sites in Jamaica, I would probably say:

  1. The Morant Bay Court House
  2. The Milk River and Bath Mineral Spas
  3. The Rose Hall Great House
  4. The town of Port Royal
  5. The Accompong Maroon Village
  6. The Ward Theater
  7. The Blue Mountains
  8. The town of Falmouth
  9. The Old Jewish Cemetery &
  10. The Historic Cast Iron Bridge in Spanish Town

I have a page on famous places in Jamaica, make sure you don't miss it!

The Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT), since 1958, has been doing a tremendous job to keep many of these sites in tact.

For detail background information on the above plus other historic sites, including their historical significance,
visit the The Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT)Website.

(The site may be marginally slow, but it does have a heck of a lot of information)
