The Devon house was built by George Stiebel, the son of the housekeeper and Jewish businessman. After making a fortune in Venezuela's gold mines, he bought 99 properties in Jamaica, including 53 acres of St. Andrew's Parish, and built the Devon House there in 1881. There are many Jamaican, Caribbean, British, and French antiques, as well as Jamaican reproductions, which evoke memories of the Jamaican great house from 1860 to 1870. The architectural style of Devon House is representative of the Jamaican Georgia era art style, showing very neat and symmetrical lines. In September 1990, Devon House was designated as a national memorial hall by the National Heritage Trust of Jamaica (JNHT).

Bob Marley Museum, Kingston
The Museum of Bob Marley's former residence is located in a residential area. Although the entrance of this small courtyard is not impressive, it has a unique view. The walls of the courtyard are covered with pictures and cartoons of Bob. The colorful colors and the red, yellow, or black cloth belts around the curtain make the courtyard in the civilian area seem unreal like a fairy tale world. If you've heard about reggae and Bob Marley, even if you're not a fan of his, coming to this yard can feel like a pilgrimage trance. Bob Marley bought the house in 1975. After his death, his wife turned it into a museum. The main hall displays Bob Marley's personal belongings. The living place under the stage of the deceased artist attracts tourists.
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday: 9:30-16:00, closed on Sunday
Address: 6, 56 hope Rd, Kingston, Jamaica
