Bob Marley.


Trench Town was named after Daniel Power Trench, whose family had immigrated to Jamaica in the late 1700. During the early years of the 20th century rural migrants settled on the Trench Pen Lands and other lands in the area of west Kingston. In the early 1930's. 200 acres of the parcel of land which made up Trench Pen was subdivided to facilitate a residential community to be called Trench Town. 


The development of Jamaica culture was impacted by the six blocks that make up the government yards which have contributed immeasurably to Jamaican and International culture. Important elements of music, sports, politics and religion were born and emerged.  Trench Town Culture yard located at 6 and Lower First Street has always served as a community yard then and still today. The Culture yard community leader "Tata Ford ' Lived. On his return from America Bob Marley moved into the culture yard. While Living in the yard the culture yard community leader Vincent " Tata" Ford taught Bob how to play the guitar and also write the popular song " No Woman No Cry". Bob Marley famous song " Natty Dread" retraces his steps as he walks from his dwelling on first street up to the end of government yards on Seventh Street. It was while living at 6 & 8 street that the Reggae band Wailers were formed.
