10 Fort Matthew in St. George’s, Grenada

Adjacent to Fort Frederick on Richmond Hill is Fort Matthew. This British fortress is considerably larger than its French neighbor. Fort Matthew is also younger, having been built from 1784 through 1790. About 90 years later, when the citadel no longer served a military purpose, the property became a mental institution. Unfortunately, Fort Matthew was mostly destroyed by the U.S. invasion of Grenada in 1983. Fort Matthew remains largely in ruins.
