SCOTTS HALL MAROONS
Scott Hall, located in the hills along the Wag water and Flint River, is a vibrant Maroon community with a strong African heritage. This community has continued to offer protection to many prominent families in the parish of St Mary. Scott’s Hall was a Maroon splinter settlement to the south of Nanny Town as surveyed in the 1760s. The present Chief, Colonel Prehay continues to promote typical African cultural traditions among the Scott’s Hall Maroons. An important site in the Scott’s Hall area has been named by the MHRP as “Konkonsacietful” which was supposed to be the trial location of Maroons who committed crimes in the society.
