Marine Farm National Park
In an effort to protect shipping at the north entrance of the Crooked Island Passage, the British established a fort on this site in the 18th century. Ruins on the compound include a main house and kitchen, as well as a military compound with historic drawings, cannons [with the king's seal] and other artifacts. They are poignant reminders of the early occupants of this site and that the British once ruled The Islands of The Bahamas.
The fort and extensive plantation ruins on the other side of the Salt Pond cover 4.4 acres. This site is a protected landmark and became a National Park in 2002, managed by the Bahamas National Trust.
