Old Fire Station in Port-of-Spain

Originally built in 1897 and refurbished and renovated in 2000, The Old Fire Station is an excellent example of the preservation of a historic building which has been elegantly blended with the modern architectural landscape of the city. For ten years (1989-1999) it was the home of the Trinidad Theatre Workshop which was founded and directed by West Indian poet and Nobel Prize Winner, Derek Walcott. It has been incorporated into the National Library Complex and remains a historic gem in the city of Port-of-Spain.
