What to Do, What to See
- Halse Hall Great House which stands upon land given to Major Thomas Hales, an English officer, in 1655. Halse played a leading role in the Maroon Wars. After his death in 1702, the house was owned by Francis Saddler Halse and was expanded.
- May Pen Clock Tower. The stone tower is 24 feet tall by 8 feet deep and wide and may have been erected following World War II.
- Milk River Spa, a mineral spa established in 1794, famous worldwide for its therapeutic radioactive waters;
- Saint Peter's Church. One of Jamaica’s oldest churches is in Alley, the old capital of a former parish, Vere. It was founded in 1671 and the current brick and mortar structure was erected around 1715;
- Vernam Field, the former American lend-lease air base (later called Vernam Air Force Base), named in honor of American World War I ace pilot Remington D.B. Vernam. Vernam Field is known for drag racing – it is the site of Jamaica’s first car-racing track.
