Seaford Town - Germany in Jamaica
published: Monday December 19, 2005
Nestled in the hills of eastern Westmoreland is the history-rich Seaford Town.
Founded 170 years ago in 1835 by immigrants from northern Germany, it is more popularly known as 'German Town'. Many of the residents still possess European features, which reinforce Jamaica's motto 'Out of Many, One People'.
