U.S. Ambassador, Donald R. Tapia Visits CY


United States Ambassador to Jamaica, Donald R. Tapia visited the Trench Town Culture Yard Museum this week. Architect of the TTCYM, Chris Whyms-Stone and TTCYM Director Sophia Dowe escorted  him on the tour. Stone describes the origins of Trench Pen's transition to Trench Town in the 1940's.

This compliments the January visit of cruise boat tourists, amplifying the exposure of the museum's  significance in Kingston's music history.
