Liberty Hall in San Ignacio, long ago
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE HISTORICAL LIBERTY HALL WAS LIVABLE AND USABLE, but many claimed that they would restore it - Still waiting.
I Iived right in front of this majestic building for 46 years. - This is where I first saw my beautiful girl friend and my future beloved wife . Now of 63 years married wife. This is where my lovely 4 girls and one boy saw the first days of their life. ( Their infancy )
This building marks an era when Belizeans of African decent were more united, under the banner of the U.N.I.A. (The United Negro Improvement Association).
This Building donated by Mr Isaah Morter, a wealthy Black Man, served Belizeans in many ways,
It was the Home of the UNIA, the Black Cross Nurses, the Imperial Musical Band, a Boxing gym, a Wedding Hall, the Cradle of the UBAD, and the first Home of the Excelsior High School, Recreational Centre for the Development of African Belizeans.
The 10 Sept Parade use to always Pass Barrack Road. A few years ago a neighbor that lived next to Liberty Hall and a SHYSTER Attorney tried to hijacked Liberty Hall and convert it into his own Personal Property for little or nothing.
