Marryshow House
This structure was once the home of T. Albert Marryshow, better known as The “Father of the Federation.” This West Indian statesman promoted the formation of one nation from all of the West Indies. Aside from its historical connections, Marryshow House is important in that it houses the local center of the University of the West Indies as well as a small reference library and an active folk theatre.
