Haiti Reconstruction - Plans to Rebuild Jean-Jacques Dessalines' Residence in town of Marchand Dessalines

A few weeks ago I decided to do a little "Tourist Local" and found myself in Marchand Dessalines Haiti, the first Capital of the Republic, that's where I discovered the Government's plan to rebuild the Residence of Emperor Jean-Jacques Dessalines...

Marchand Dessalines has quite a few historical sites I visited a few of them...

Look... PHOTO from Marchand Dessalines Haiti

From what I gathered from the local residents, the original homes of Homes of Colonel Charlotin Marcadieu, Dessalines' wife Claire Heureuse, and two little houses owned by Emperor Jean Jacques Dessalines still exists in the city of Marchand. I took some pictures, I will upload them soon!

JJ Dessaline's home was destroyed by a hurricane Allen back in 1980.

The Haitian Government has a gate around the property and they will rebuild it back to it's original look.

What do you think about that?

GREAT IDEA. Haiti should set up a committee to research and restore ALL the historical sites.

The UN may be able to provide funding if asked.

*Great for rebuilding the confidence of Haitians in their rich history.

*Great as tourist attractions and therefore for the eonomy.

*Great because in the process the history will be researched and documented.
