Fort George

Fort George

Fort George is situated on the Titchfield Peninsula in the town of Port Antonio. The idea for a fort was born in 1728–29 when a committee of the House of Assembly met to consider measures to be taken in the face of a possible Spanish invasion. The fort served a dual purpose, firstly as a source of defense against foreign invasion, and secondly to deal with the menace of the Maroons in the area. The fort which was built to hold 22 guns and several George III cannons, has walls ten feet thick. The fort was used during World War I. The barracks of the fort now houses classrooms for the Titchfield High School.
