Charlestown Memorial Square

Downtown Charlestown







Email This Page

Memorial Square is the larger, and grander, of the two squares that form the center of Charlestown, the capital of Nevis, Eastern Caribbean. The Square very much still has the elegant feeling it must have had in the 18th century, with the court and library building rising somberly and impressively at the south end, which is Prince William Street.

The enclosure of the square itself has palm trees and a flame tree, an attractive hedge of flowering bougainvillea, a lawn, nice benches, and a solemn memorial in the center to the Nevis dead of WWI and WWII.

Local buses (private vans licensed by the government) wait at the north end of the square. These buses run towards Gingerland; each one departs when it is full or nearly full.

Visitors may pay tribute to the many soldiers of Nevis who gave their lives in WWI and WWII commemorated with a monument in their honour. It is also a lovely spot sit on the benches to relax before visiting the many historic sites Charlestown has to offer.
