Where you'll be

Fort Rocky is a abandoned fort utilized primarily by Movie-makers, Photographers, and Artists as a rustic backdrop to accentuate or tell a particular story. it has an eerie feel almost like you can be brought back to that time when you enter a room.

Fort Charles - is a restored fort that has been done tastefully to preserve an authentic experience and has been made into a national monument and museum managed by the Jamaica Heritage Trust.
