Rolle Town Tombs


Rolle Town Tombs About 7 miles Southeast of Georgetown is the quiet settlement of Rolletown. The site of the tombs is well signed from the main highway. The tombs date back to the loyalist era and belong to Ann McKay, who died at aged 26, and her newborn son. There is a poignant inscription on hers, the largest monument. Her husband, Alexander McKay, died just 2 years later in 1794. Down the hill is the Rolletown cemetery where generations of Rolles are interred. The settlement is full of history and has beautiful views of the bonefishing flats. At low tide you can walk almost all the way to Man-of-War cay (there is still about a 30 foot channel that's quite deep). The cay has beautiful beaches and ancient fortifications on the bluff. It is also a great kayaking destination. (Note July 2020 - There are now two great restaurants in the area Blu on the Water and Haulover Bay Bar & Grill....both are worth visiting!)
