Rawson Square

Rawson Square

Rawson Square located in downtown Nassau, is the gateway to the city for cruiseship passengers. It was named for Sir Rawson W. Rawson who was Governor of The Bahamas during the late 1860s. In the middle of the square is a bronze bust of Sir Milo Butler, the first Bahamian Governor General in an independent Bahamas. A fountain in the square was named for Sir Stafford Sands, the first Bahamian Minister of Tourism.

During the Bahamas Quincentennial Celebrations in 1992, a monument was erected in Rawson Square by the Bahamas Association of Land Surveyors in honor of Christopher Columbus landfall.
