The Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park Society is a membership organization incorporated under the Companies Act and was founded in 1965 for the main purpose of restoring, preserving and managing the historic Brimstone Hill Fortress.
The Fortress, a UNESCO World heritage Site, is a 17th and 18th-century military complex designed by the British and built by enslaved Africans. The centuries-old fortress is a testimony to European colonial expansion, the African slave trade and the emergence of new societies in the Caribbean.
