Press Release: The Role of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands to Protect Built Heritage (Historic Homes & Other Sites)

14 October 2021 – In response to recent public discourse regarding the mandate of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands (“National Trust”) in relation to the Islands’ built heritage, the organization wishes to share the following information with our community regarding our continued efforts to encourage the preservation and protection of historic homes for present and future generations of the Cayman Islands.

The Historic Programme of the National Trust has always been and continues to be of vital importance to the initiatives carried out including the Heritage Register for which it is responsible. This Register documents traditional Caymanian homes, based on their age, historical and cultural importance (who lived there and the role the home played in the community), as well as the materials used in the construction of the home. i.e. Ironwood, Wattle and Daub, Silver Thatch, etc.
