Freeport, Grand Bahama
The Bahamas’ second largest city, Freeport was designed by Mr. Wallace Groves, a Virginian financier in 1955. Mr. Groves was granted 50,000 acres of pineland and swamp from the Bahamian Government to develop Freeport. In August, 1955, an agreement was signed between the Government of The Bahamas and Mr. Groves in order to create a free trade zone area pursuant to its agreement with the Government; this is known as the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
