Author: Stephens, J.E.
Abstract: Sitting 790 feet above sea level, the British first mounted cannon in 1690 and construction continued, intermittently for just over 100 years. In 1782, the French laid siege to the fort which lead to the British surrendering. However in 1783, the Treaty of Paris restored St. Kitts along with the adjacent island of Nevis back to the British. In 1987 Brimstone Hill was declared a National Park and in 1999 was declared a World Heritage Site. In its prime is was called "The Gibraltar of the West Indies."
