Overview

This is the site where the famous 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion began. During the disturbances a portion of the courthouse was destroyed by fire, but most of the original structure remains. This building is intricately intertwined with the history of Jamaica itself. The instigator was a Baptist deacon and farmer, named Paul Bogle, now one of Jamaica's national heroes. His statue takes a place of pride in front of the courthouse.
