Tarpum Bay Historical & Heritage Society - "The Renaissance of the Lil Prep"

Eleuthera, Bahamas - It was more than two and a half years ago when the Tarpum Bay Historical and Heritage Society set out to undertake the restoration of one of the most important buildings in this small quaint waterfront township. It is what has become known as the “Lil Prep”.

Older members of this community remember this space fondly as the place where they had many “firsts”; voted for the first time, went to school for the first time, saw their first black and white movie or attended their first dance.

Under the leadership of Mr. Cleveland Knowles and Mr. Eugene Carey, the restoration began with a bang as more than 65 spring break volunteers from Clemson University, South Carolina, USA along with local volunteers began the process of stripping the walls of plaster that had become compromised by the fig tree roots that were penetrating from the back.
