The Queen's Staircase, commonly referred to as 'The 66 Steps', was hewn out of solid limestone rock by slaves between 1793 and 1794. It provided a direct route from Fort Fincastle to Nassau. These steps were later renamed in honor of Queen Victoria, who reigned in Britain for 64 years, from 1837 to 1901. Because the pathway that leads to the steps has been paved, the bottom step is buried under the asphalt, so there are now only 65 steps visible.
