Morant Bay was the site of the Morant Bay Rebellion in 1865, led by Jamaican national hero Paul Bogle, a very significant event in the history of Jamaica and the struggle for freedom from colonialism.

The site of the courthouse where the action happened burned down in 2007, but the famous Paul Bogle statue is there. In 2005, even the historic society was struggling, but this is definitely a place to visit if you are into history.
