Carriacou Museum

Endorsee Description

The Carriacou Museum was founded in 1976 and has occupied three locations in Hillsborough before settling into its present home on Paterson Street in 1989. In fact, the present building is of historical interest in its own right being an old cotton ginnery (the second oldest in the world) when it ceased operating in 1979.

The Carriacou Historical Society seeks to preserve our heritage by hosting digs by archaeological groups, organizing seminars and craft exhibitions, and maintaining a good reference library of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique history including some general West Indian and African history.
