St Thomas Anglican, Trelawny


St Thomas Angl, Stewart TownHere is an article that Paul Williams wrote about this church.

St Thomas Angl, Stewart Town 2



Leaving Webb Memorial Baptist, next on the list was to locate St Thomas Anglican.  As I turned the corner (don’t ask which one) I saw the church on my left and the buildings below on my right.  Off course I had to ask questions.  It turns out that this building was the original Police Station for Stewart Town and was built in 1841…if you look at the photograph of the front of the church, you will see the “Police Station” in the background to the right.

The small building before the “Police Station” was a jail house for men. The ruins across the road was for women.  The next building down, the ladies tell me was used to butcher meat.

    Went when I attended the Elementary School. I am very familiar with the structure. This outstanding building should be renovated and utilized as a Town Center. If you do not understand Trelawney then you do not know about slavery nor the real Jamaica. The longer the wait the more damage from the elements, humans, and termites. A existing condition survey should be immediately undertaken which will determine the direction to move forward.
