Located at Hope Road in St. Andrew, King’s House is the official residence of Jamaica’s Head of State, the Governor-General. King’s House became the residence of the British governor when the seat of government was moved from Spanish Town to Kingston in 1872 and remained so until Independence in 1962. It was wrecked in the earthquake of 1907 and rebuilt in 1909 from designs by Sir Charles Nicholson.
