St. Christopher, the first Caribbean island to be permanently settled by both the English and the French (who shared the island between 1627 and 1713 ), was a model and a springboard for English and French colonialism in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

Following on the heels of our Four and a Half Star Rating from Trip Advisor in 2012 the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park has just been awarded a 2013 Travelers' Choice Award from Trip Advisor. Brimstone Hill has also been voted as one of the Top Ten Landmarks in the Caribbean, holding a prestigious position along with other famous landmarks such as the Cathedral of Santo Domingo; Rose Hall Great House in Jamaica; San Juan Cathedral in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge in Willemstad, Curacao and Plaza Vieja in Havana, Cuba.

Such accolades are particularly heartwarming because they come, not from travel writers, but everyday visitors to our Federation's most important attraction. On behalf of the Council of Management of the Brimstone Hill Society I wish to thank our dedicated and hardworking staff whose efforts have been validated. Over the past three years we have restored the Limekiln and several of the casemates at the Infantry Officers Quarters and added two new exhibits at the Fort George Museum. We shall continue with the same level of enthusiasm and passion to ensure that a visit to Brimstone Hill remains an unparalled experience.
