THE STORY OF US
The Willie Redhead Foundation for the Preservation and Urban Renewal of St. George’s was founded in 1994 by architect Norris Mitchell as a NOT FOR PROFIT, Non-Governmental Organization to protect and promote awareness of Grenada’s built heritage. Norris decided to name the foundation in honour of Willie Redhead who was a tireless advocate for the preservation of historic St. George’s. His book, “A City on A Hill,” is an invaluable text for anyone wanting to know more about the history of Grenada’s capital, it’s streets, houses and commercial buildings. The Foundation carries on his work and has been involved in a range of projects including the restoration of Simmon’s Alley, the replacement of street signs in St. George’s, creating a survey of historic buildings in St. George’s, the production of a brief documentary on the historic water wheels of the island, and repairs to the hospital steps and walkway. There’s a lot more to be done and you can help.
