You can see the Hofius building in this photo. Second on the left. This photo also reveals that Battlefield Park which would be on the right side of the photo had houses on it around the turn of the last century.

Belize National Historical Society
A group for Belizeans who would like to post, discuss and preserve our unique history. We hope our group with the help of our members will eventually develop into an official NGO known as the Belize National Historical Society. For the time being, we want to create an online bank through crowd sourcing of anything of historical content about Belize including historic photos, buildings, bios of patriotic Belizeans to name a few.

The location where this building was located was where our first prison was. The prison was destroyed by fire in 1853 I believe after which this building was constructed. This building was also destroyed by fire and was replaced by another building (see second photo). This new building also acted as the Post Office at one time and then was destroyed by fire as well. The building was replaced with the Barclays Building.

This corner, or near it, was where the first Anglican Church was located prior to building the Cathedral near Government House. It is my belief that Church Street was named Church because the Church was located on it. Previous to this site, the Anglican Church was located on St. Georges Caye and was moved to the mainland after the Spanish invaded St. Georges Caye in 1779.
