Fort Cornwallis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, making it the perfect place to visit Georgetown’s old historic buildings. Fort Cornwallis was built of timber on the site by Captain Francis Wright in 1786 and is one of the most important buildings in the area.

The building seen today was previously occupied by Francis Wright in 1793. It is used as a military and administrative base to protect the interests of the Georgetown area and to avoid French attacks.
