The Historic Rockfort

Documentary evidence does not provide the exact date for the construction of Rockfort, however there is some evidence that it was constructed around 1694, with various additions after. In 1694, it was felt that the French would advance on the Liguanea Plain from St. Thomas and the site at Rockfort was hastily fortified to bar their way, with all the original guns pointed towards St. Thomas. The roadway through the fort was used as a major road from Kingston to the east until the 1960's. The importance of Rockfort as a military stronghold began to decline towards the end of the 18th century. A 'LINE' of defence at the ROCK, as the Rockfort site was first called, was recorded in the Journals of the House of Assembly on Friday, March 27, 1702.

The remaining associated structures of the Fort signify mastery in engineering, use of Jamaican building materials as well as British military construction of the period. The property was subsequently used by the Prisons Department (later the Department of Correctional Services) and was a base for German POW.
