Way Back When - Black River Heritage Tour

This tour digs deep into the colourful past of this small town, best known for its beautiful river, and the fact that it was the first town in Jamaica to be lit by electricity.

You''ll find a cast of progressive thinkers, quirky civil servants, merchants, mistresses, soldiers, slaves and ordinary townspeople with an irreverent sense of humour.

You''ll experience the flavour of Black River today as people go about their everyday business, in a town which has seen its fair share of ups and downs. As you walk through the streets of the town, which was second only to Kingston in prominence, your exploration will uncover a lot about Jamaica’s past.

This trip through time is a walk which lasts just under two hours, including rest stops. The actual time spent walking is less than an hour - you''ll be so involved you won't feel the time pass!
