NATIONAL TRUST FOR THE CAYMAN ISLANDS: HISTORIC REGISTER UPDATE UNDERWAY

The National Trust for the Cayman Islands is conducting an update of its Historic Register over the next several months.

Persons may see our volunteers out and about in the various Districts, compiling information in relation to old time Caymanian Homes and other historical structures, artefacts and relics.

Our data collectors will have identification cards to confirm they are representing the National Trust and we ask the public to please assist them as best as possible. They will be taking photos and speaking with persons about the history of their homes and the important familial relations or prominent persons that make each structure special.

We would like to thank the entire Cayman Islands community for accommodating us as we go about highlighting the Islands’ past for present and future generations.

The National Trust for the Cayman Islands was established in 1987 with the purpose to preserve natural environments and places of historic significance for present and future generations of the Cayman Islands.

We do this by focusing on four key areas:

Environment: Our priority for Cayman’s natural environment is the establishment of a system of protected areas. These natural sites are essential for the survival of native plant and animal species.

History: Through the preservation of historic sites in the Cayman Islands, we safeguard our unique heritage.

Education: Adults and children alike are exposed to Cayman’s natural environment and heritage through lectures and a dedicated student programme.

Conservation: Scientific field research allows us to study and further our knowledge of Cayman’s native and indigenous species and to protect the habitats in which they live.

For information on the historic register updates please email historic@nationaltrust.org.ky.

Find out how you can support our efforts by either making a donation, becoming a corporate partner, sponsoring a historic or environmental site, or becoming a member by contacting 749-1121.
