New – A Taste of the TCI
The name Bambarra has historical significance to the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands. In 1841 a Spanish slave ship carrying slaves bound for Cuba wrecked off the coast of East Caicos. By then slavery was illegal in the British territories and the 192 captives that survived were freed. They were from a Mande tribe in West Africa consisting of persons that spoke the Bambarra language. These are the ancestors of the many Turks and Caicos islanders.

Grand Turk Waterfront 1830
This very special poster is taken from an original water color by an Unknown Artist who clearly loved our waterfront. Although there is some “artistic license” many of the buildings are identifiable. The building to the far right is the Post Office. The faint buildings to the left are the current government offices. Next is the Kate Jones Building that house the Danish Consulate in the 1800s. Unfortunately it burned down in 1963. The building that replaced it looks very similar. The brown building with a 13 star USA flag was the American Consulate. It still exists as the Odd Fellows building at the corner of Market & Front Streets. Buy a bit of Grand Turk history and support the Museum.
We also sell local stamps for the Caribbean, USA, Canada, the UK and Europe. We can also post the cards at the local Grand Turk Post Office.
Be advised our postal system is slow and arrival of your post can take from 2 weeks to years to never!
