TUNNELS    Accessible only from George Washington House and Museum, these tunnels were re-discovered purely by chance in June 2011.  Built sometime during the 1820’s the system is soon to be 200 years old and includes at least 9 tunnels in the Savannah area with others.

Originally constructed to provide drainage to the area (the first such system in Barbados), oral history has indicated that they were adopted for use as ‘escape routes’ for the Garrison troops, should the area have ever been invaded, and other clandestine uses.
