Sam Sharpe Square

Montego Bay

This bustling, cobbled square is named for Samuel Sharpe (1801–32), national hero and leader of the 1831 Christmas Rebellion; it is also where he was hanged in its aftermath. At the square’s northwest corner is the National Heroes' Monument. Nearby is the Cage, a tiny brick building built in 1806 as a lockup for vagrants and other miscreants.
