Rawson Square located in downtown Nassau, is the gateway to the city for cruise-ship 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' Quin-centennial Celebrations in 1992, a monument was erected in Rawson Square by the Bahamas Association of Land Surveyors in honor of Christopher Columbus' landfall.
