Black River Heritage Tour

Delve into the rich history of slave auctions, the logwood shipping industry, Shakespeare’s relatives, horse racing, and so much more. You’ll hear of a cast of former and present Black River townspeople from progressive thinkers, quirky civil servants, merchants, mistresses, soldiers, slaves and ordinary townspeople with an irreverent sense of humour.

You’ll experience the flavour of Black River today as people go about their everyday business, in a town which has seen its fair share of ups and downs. As you walk through the streets of the town, which was second only to Kingston in prominence, your exploration will uncover a lot about Jamaica’s past.

This trip through time is a walk which lasts just under two hours, including rest stops. The actual time spent walking is less than an hour – you’ll be so involved you won’t feel the time pass!

It’s a Competitive World for Low-Budget People,
Spending the Time while Earning the Nickel…
With No Regard for Who It May Tickle,
My Cup is Full to the Brim!
