The heritage of Guyana is a combination of great local architecture, colonial
remnants, history, modern political movements, and the living culture of its diverse
population. The net result is that the built heritage of Guyana is a riveting hook for
travellers. The wooden churches with stained glass features, museums with
Demerara windows, Dutch sluice and canal engineering in Georgetown and a
number of other historical structures in the country offer a window into the
country’s past and present.
The National Trust of Guyana is the leading organisation responsible for the
preservation and restoration of the colonial buildings and historical sites found
throughout Guyana. Soft copies of select National Trust publications will soon be
accessible via this website.
