Fulfilling the Backyardlabrish  passion to ‘Enlighten & Preserve’ we are delighted to bring you yet another of Dr. Joy Lumsden’s discoveries.

Moneague, in the Parish of St. Ann, has been home to intermittent lakes that have brought both joy and sorrow to residents of that area. This phenomenon was documented as far back as 1810.

This week we will reveal interesting information collected from various sources describing the activities in and around the 'Lakes and Ponds', as they were sometimes called. Learn about the impressive Moneague Hotel,  built in 1890. If you or someone you know have stories about Moneague, please join us and share.
