Cottle Church was the first non-segregrated church in the Caribbean. The master was said to be noble and kind. Now you can actually get married here, right under the arches! When I was there, a herd of goats were hanging out around the ruins. Really great photo op but it'll just take a few minutes. I saw this as part of a Funky Monkey Tour and that's the way to go.

Not much there but interesting that solves built this church and worshiped there. Interesting reading in the hut adjacent to the church about the silvery and how some of the owners treated them. Well worth the time

Ruins and history of a historic church. Take a few minutes to stop and learn about Nevis and the way they worshipped.

This is a nicely restored church (even if it doesn't have a roof) that has a great history of being the church where the freed slaves would go to find food and clothing . The congregation would also find jobs for them on the island. The stone work on this church is worth noting also.

Walked from Oualie beach early in a morning while it was cool to visit this church. Well kept and interesting part of history. Cottle was a good person on Nevis and built this church for his family and the families of slaves. He worked to free slaves and employ them if they wished on a salary . Would be good if it was totally restored.
