Make The @PeterTosh Memorial Garden A National Historic Landmark!


Recently, the Estate of the late Peter Tosh released a petition in efforts to have the Jamaican Tourist Board and the Government of Jamaica register The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden a National Historic Landmark. The Museum, located in Belmont, Westmoreland, was erected to preserve the life and legacy of the late Musician and original member of The Wailers. The Estate believes that recognizing the Museum as a Historic Landmark will protect it for generations as Tosh was an advocate for the legalization of Marijuana, fought for Equal Rights, and further expanded Jamaica’s Music and Culture.

Peter Tosh was born in Grange Hill, Westmoreland in 1944 and was known as a Musician, Reggae Artist, and Activist. He was a core member of The Wailers along with the late Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer where he received much success before embarking a solo career. He has collaborated with the likes of Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones and recorded many great songs including “Stepping Razor“, “Legalize It“, “Johnny B Goode“, and penned songs such as “Get Up, Stand Up” and “400 Years” for The Wailers. Peter Tosh died on September 11, 1987 as a result of a home invasion. He was posthumously awarded the Order Of Merit in October 2012.

The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden petition can be found here.
