Burchell Memorial Baptist Church

TIME : 2016/2/18 15:34:22

Two blocks east of Sam Sharpe Sq is one of the churches in which Sam Sharpe is said to have been a deacon. The building, which dates to 1835, is a slice of British countryside architecture smoldering handsomely away in the tropical heat. The original church was founded in 1824 by Rev Thomas Burchell.

Sharpe’s remains are buried in the vault.
