Antilles Hotel
This structure, one of Grenada’s oldest, is in part one of the former French military barracks constructed in 1704. From 1767 to 1880 the British used portions for a prison. Shortly after, the upper floors became the island’s first hotel with the ground floor used as a warehouse. Currently it houses part of the Grenada National Museum. The façade supports a delicate cast iron balcony of which only a few remain in St. George’s.
