Saint Elizabeth Parish Church - Corner of Main Street and North Street

The current parish church building was constructed in 1837. However, the church was built on the site of an older church which is believed to date back to the 1700s. Some ruins of the old church are still visible at the Parish Church. The church mixes traditional and gothic styles, featuring yellow bricks, towers, battlements, mahogany columns and corner pinnacles.

Inside the church, look out for monuments to Robert Hugh Munro and Caleb Dickeson - benefactors of two of Jamaica's most prestigious schools, Munro College and Hampton School. Many of the notable figures in the history of Black River are buried on the grounds of the church.
