The first church of the English settlers, who arrived at this location in 1627, is aptly named St. James, for the saint and the king of that time, James I. It is noted for the round tower with its spiral staircase and 1684 baptismal font. The King William III Bell, which was cast in 1699, is older than the famed Liberty Bell of the United States. US President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, attended services here on their visit to Barbados in 1982.
