    Broken Buildings

     
    History Lessons from Barbados

    Speightstown Barbados, is the second largest town on the Island located about twelve miles North of Bridgetown, in the North Western Parish of St.Peter.

    Speightstown was settled around 1630 and was in those days the major port and commercial center of Barbados.
    The little town got its name from William Speight the owner of the land where the town is located.

    He was a wealthy businessman that would go on to become a member of the first Barbados parliament in 1639.

    Broken buildings tell the stories of the past, quietly they stand and watch history pass them by... but still they hold the silent whispers of passions of the ghost that now roam.

    Broken buildings never lost in history, never lost in time.

    The keys to our future are standing tall never will they die.
