Trenchtown Culture Yard

Trenchtown Culture Yard Review

This restored tenement building where Bob Marley spent much of his youth is now a protected National Heritage Site. Marley wrote frequently about life in the "government yard," and the area is credited with being the birthplace of reggae. The project was developed by the Trenchtown Development Association, a group dedicated to breathing new life into what had been one of Kingston's worst slums. The building contains a rudimentary museum of Marley and Wailer memorabilia.
