Fort George Ruins

Fort George was a colonial era fortification that was built in 1790s to protect the harbour. By the 20th century, the fort was no longer in use. Only a tall silk cotton tree growing within the fort was used as a lookout post to spot German submarines that patrolled the Caribbean waters. Today, very little remains of the structure. The ruins belong to the National Trust for the Cayman Islands and are an important remnant of the colonial times.
