Highlights

Celebrating 400 Years of Parliament 
We will discuss some of the Parlimentary ACT's that have been legislated over the centuries and you will find some very intriguing!

Barr's Bay Park
This scenic spot right off of Front Street has deep ties to Bermuda’s African heritage. Here you will learn of the Enterprise ship landing and the plight of those onboard and how their future was effected by this event. "We Arrive," a striking statue, graces the park to commemorate this event in our history. 

Wesley Square 
More than a century after slavery was abolished in Bermuda, segregation remained a scourge for the island. During the Theatre Boycotts of 1959, Bermudians of African descent rose up against racial segregation. The statue "When Voices Rise", in Hamilton’s Wesley Square, commemorates that event. 

Sarah "Sally" Bassett
An Enslaved woman accused of poisoning a slave owner, and being the ringleader of the poisoning plots in the 1700's. A striking statue, graces the park to commemorate this event in our history.
