Watling's Castle, the ruins of a late 18th - Century Loyalist plantation house by a buccaneer who frequented the place, was named for George Watling. The substantial ruins at Sandy Point, including the three-story Great House, kitchen, slave quarters, barns, and boundary walls, were studied by the Gerace Research Center, formerly the Bahamian Field Station. The Lookout Tower, which overlooks French Bay, has been restored and you can see both sides of the point. The site is important to the island's history and was part of an archeological study undertaken by the Gerace Research Center.
