Old Road TownLed by Sir Thomas Warner, the first British settlers in St. Kitts landed in Old Road Bay in 1624, after failing to create a settlement in Guyana. They set up Old Road Town to raise and trade tobacco and, for a brief period, lived in peace with the native Carib Indians. Ironically, they based their town close to Bloody Point, where, just two years later, English and French soldiers murdered thousands of Caribs.
