Moore Town Maroons Tours and Sightseeing Excursions Overview
Moore Town Maroons
Moore Town is home to the descendants of independent communities of former runaway slaves known as Maroons. The African ancestors of the Moore Town Maroons were forcibly removed from their native lands to the Caribbean by Spanish slave traders in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The term Maroon, derived from the Spanish word cimarron (wild), refers to those slaves who fled the plantations in the early 1600s and established their own settlements in the Blue and John Crow Mountains of eastern Jamaica. You are welcome to walk around the town. Be sure to see Bump Grave in the town square, the town's best known site and burial place of national heroine Nanny.
