Day 312 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Visit 32 Market Street in St. Ann’s Bay

32 Market Street

Pay your respects to Jamaica’s first National Hero Marcus Garvey at his birthplace at 32 Market Street in St. Ann’s Bay. The house he was born in, in 1877, is still on the property and currently occupied. The government is planning to acquire the house and turn it into a public museum to honor Garvey’s life and works. There is a bust of Marcus Garvey in the front of the house that was erected through the efforts of Anthony Scott and the African People Association.

About 365 Things to Do, See and Eat in Jamaica
Jamaica has so many unique foods, places and events to offer. These things are often missed by visitors to Jamaica and even locals. Our goal is to have you try new things and see what Jamaica has to fully offer with something to do 365 days of the year. Please note that these are all our opinions and we are always open to suggestions.
