Founded in 1635 in the past Speightstown was our most important port, exporting sugar and molasses, indigo, cotton, tobacco and ginger.Many historic buildings dating from colonial times, including Arlington House, still remain standing in the town and can be seen mostly along Queen Street, Church Street and Orange Street. Speightstown saw a lot of activity during the reign of the sugar industry and the day of the slave trade.

Many slaves would have passed through this town, even if they were to be shipped on further to other islands or America.
