Corozal Town, Corozal, Belize
Corozal Town Historical Walk
Soldiers stationed at the fort were members of the British West India Regiment who mostly came from Jamaica and Barbados. At Fort Barlee, British Honduras was witness to some of the rare military incidences that helped shaped this country into what it is today.
The Corozal Public Hospital, along with doctors' and nurses' quarters was built inside the former compound in the early 1900's and was in use until Hurricane Janet in 1955 destroyed the structures. In the late 1950's government administrative buildings were constructed and are currently in use. Fort Barlee is the last standing fort in Belize.
