history of Grenada
History of Grenada In 1763, when our land was named Grenada, the British took control of the French who named the country La Grenada. The name originates from Granada, which was given by the Spanish in the 1520s. Efforts to redeem the island of French influence have failed since 1649 when the British regained power, when they inhabited the French island. Over the years, our island is showing the effects of French and English settlement associated with the Irish customs, African, East Indian and Caribbean descent.
The people who previously believed that they had settled in Grenada were Arawak-speaking
immigrants from South America. Archaeological sites have found much evidence about settlers, including the skilled agriculturalists and fishermen who built their own boats, leaving behind the capabilities we have today. Are. Other archaeological treasures are the Petroglyphs, located in Doxon Bay, in the parish of St. Mark, where painters on large stones have presented ghostly faces and paintings.
The National Museum of St. George, our capital city, houses rare artifacts and collections from past Grenadians at the Carriaco Museum on the island of Carriaco and the Walker’s Rome Museum in the parish of St. Andrew’s.
Many historical sites are also preserved – and in some cases, restored – offering physical experience of attacks, battles and tragedies throughout our history. On February 7, 1974, Grenada became the first Windward and Leeward Island to become an independent state. Every year on this day,
we recognize this feat through formal and informal traditions to commemorate the independence of our islands, from formal ‘march passes’ to family picnics, through uniformed squads and public presentations at our national stadium.
