Thompson Monument

Statue or Public Art Display
Photo of the late Senator George Layman Thompson – Ann Thompson

Located in Gregory Town, which is known to be the "Pineapple Town" of The Bahamas, is a monument that reads thus -" In memory of Senator, the Honorable George Layman Thompson Sr. (1920 - 1983), Justice of the Peace in Gregory Town for 40 years."

In the 1940's, the late George Thompson, along with his brothers, opened a cannery for pineapples and tomatoes. They also produced Pineapple Rum. Jimmy Headbury erected a metal sculpture and flag pole to remember the work of these men and today it has become a symbol of hospitality in the settlement of Gregory Town.
