Trelawny Parish Church
The Trelawny Parish Church - Falmouth
The Falmouth Parish Church was built in 1975. Built on land donated by Edward Barrett (the Grandfather of English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning) this was the first church to be built in Trelawny and the oldest public building in Falmouth. The church (also known as St. Peter's Anglican Church) was extended in 1842.
The church is constructed from Brick and Stone with beautiful woodwork in the interior. There are four columns made of solid mahogany and the floor is decorated with crosses made of mahogany and mahoe. The walls are decorated with monuments dating back from the early 19th century and there is an organ donated to the church by John Thorpe.
The Falmouth Parish Church suffered a lot of damage from hurricane Gilbert in 1988.© 2009 Jamaica Travel and Culture .com
