City Under Siege Exhibition

The buildings situated here were some of the first built by British settlers, dating them to the beginning of the 18th century. It is thought that they were built as magazines to store ammunition.

A fascinating feature is the score of graffiti carved on the walls by soldiers on watch – to help them stave off sleep, an offense punishable by death.

The exhibit helps tell the tale of struggle that early British settlers would have endured during a siege and helps uncover a human side to an otherwise military affair.
