Marine Farm National Park

Acklins & Crooked Island Marine Farm National Park

In an effort to protect shipping at the north entrance of the Crooked Island Passage, the British established a fort on the site of 4.4 acre Marine Farm in the 18th century.

Ruins on the former plantation compound include a main house and kitchen, as well as a military compound with historic drawings, cannons with the king's seal and other artifacts. They are poignant reminders of the early occupants of this site and that the British once ruled The Islands of The Bahamas. The site became a national park in 2002 and is under the protection of the Bahamas National Trust.
