Day 74 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Wile Away the Time at Water Square

Water Square Falmouth
Written by Staff Writer

Water Square was the chief commercial district in Falmouth in the 19th century and was the site of the original Sunday market where people could buy and sell various provisions, including fish. Falmouth was the first city in the Americas to have piped water: in 1798, a reservoir was constructed in the town’s square, and the Falmouth Water Company pumped water through pipes into private homes. This system was functional for more than 150 years, but the reservoir has now been replaced with gardens and a fountain. Here you will also find a number of shops and the  Albert Town Market.
