NOTES: The Royal Naval Dockyards were built during the American War of Independence, although most of the construction took place from 1812 and continued until the 1860s. They were built using largely convict labour. The dockyards closed in 1995 and since then many of the buildings have been converted into tourist attractions including the creation of the Bermuda Maritime Museum in the former keep area. The Casemates Barracks shown here were built 1839-1843.
