Pompey Square

Pompey Square

Pompey Square is a free-spirited social hub for local festivals, art shows, lounging and child’s play. There is an interactive water feature in the center of the square; surrounding it are restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and the Pompey Museum of Slavery and Emancipation. The history of the square goes back to the 1700s when enslaved Africans were auctioned at a marketplace in the colonial era building that houses the museum. Pompey was an African freedom fighter. On the last Friday of every month, the community organization Creative Nassau, which fights for the rights of folk artists, hosts an art village in the square filled with authentically made Bahamian products: ceramics, jewelry, handbags, paintings, and other crafts.
