George Town’s historic town hall has a new name.
Premier Alden McLaughlin and Speaker of the House McKeeva Bush unveil the new name of the George Town Town Hall – Constitution Hall – on Monday morning as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of Cayman’s Constitution.
The building, which is still in use today, was the venue where the Cayman Islands’ first constitution was signed.
Members of the public joined elected leaders, senior officials and international guests at an event on the Constitution Day public holiday to celebrate the significance of the historic building.
Among the guests were Arley James ‘AJ’ Miller, the last living vestryman who was serving in 1959, the year Cayman adopted its first Constitution.
Monday’s morning’s celebrations included a traditional Caymanian breakfast.
