The Village at Grace Bay
The Road Map of Providenciales is the most relied on guide to finding one’s way around the island especially for but not only for the visitors. I am pleased to say that the Turks and Caicos National Museum Foundation, the Village, Grace Bay now appears on the 2016 Road Map of Providenciales, which is now in circulation.
Our first map visitors were Timothy Ryan and Amanda Benson. I saw walking around in the rain dressed in raincoats and map in hand. They told me that when they saw us on the map, they were determined to find us and would not let the weather deter them. They were visiting from Tennessee and enjoyed they stay which they say was coming to an end all too quickly, a sure indication that they were having a great time. They were however very happy to spend some time learning about the history of the Turks and Caicos Islands. They said that they found it fascinating.
Our second map visitor was L. B. Brown, a first time visitor to Turks and Caicos from New York. Her vacation was all about being in the sun for a couple days to rejuvenate. She wanted to soak in the history and culture of the island. When she looked at the road map, she was thrilled to find that there was a museum office in Providenciales. She too came, map in hand in a rented car. She said that the visit to the Development Office and Heritage House and Garden was the highlight of her trip. She was looking forward to a museum on her return visit.
We look forward to welcoming more visitors.
