Trelawny – Places of Interest (Part 2)
Falmouth Presbyterian Church
Located on the corner of Rodney and Princess Streets. Known as St. Andrews Kirk, it was constructed in 1832 by prominent Scotsmen in Trelawny.
This is a cone-shaped structure, which was constructed as an iron foundry around 1801. It is located in Falmouth at the corner of Thorpe and Upper Harbour Street. The foundry was mostly used to repair sugar estate machinery.
Monument erected to a slave
Located in the old slave village on Hyde Estate. It was erected in honour of a slave woman called Eve, in 1800. She was said to be in charge of the children of those slaves who worked during the day. Legend has it that she drowned in a pond on Hyde Estate. Her master, Henry Shirley, apparently erected the monument. This monument is unique, in that it is rare that a monument was dedicated to a slave in Jamaica.
Hampden Great House, Sugar Factory and Rum Distillery were built in 1779 by a Scotsman.
