House of Culture opens exhibition on Battle of St. George’s Caye
A new exhibit is on display at the San Pedro House of Culture (SPHC), featuring the events of the Battle of Saint George’s Caye. The exhibition will be open for viewing for the remainder of the month of September, at the House of Culture located on Angel Coral Street.
The exhibition showcases historical pieces of information courtesy of the National Museum of Belize, and portrays different maps showing the routes of the Spanish attacks to the settlement on St. George’s Caye. Other pieces of the important memorabilia feature the different public meetings and the timeline of the Battle of St. George’s Caye. The exhibition also counts with the list of all the Baymen who voted to stay and fight the Spaniards, including those who voted to flee instead.
Everyone is invited to visit the exhibit during the normal opening hours of the SPHC. This is an opportunity for students and adults alike to learn some more about the crucial event that gave Belizeans the country they all have today.
The SPHC opens Monday to Friday 8AM to 5PM.
