The Heritage Asset Inventory is the official list of Trinidad and Tobago’s historic sites that are worthy of notation and preservation. The register is authorized by the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago’s Council and is by no means exhaustive. It is a part of an ongoing national programme to enhance understanding and support for preservation efforts to identify, evaluate and legally protect our heritage. The Heritage Asset Inventory is constantly updated and the Trust welcomes any historical information and oral histories the public wishes to share with us concerning these sites. Please fill out our feedback form and someone will get back to you shortly or nominate a site you think is missing from our register. Please keep checking regularly for more information or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
