CHASE awarded $6,000,000 in support of a $25M, multi-agency project to restore the once forgotten monument and to improve the immediate environs to make the site into a secure and accessible attraction and mark of a major historical event. Through the efforts of the Tourism Enhancement Fund, the Tourism Product Development Company, the Jamaica Social Investment Fund, the Social Development Commission, the Jamaica National Heritage Trust and others the restoration works were substantially completed and an official unveiling ceremony held in January 2016.
