SEE THE TRAFFIC | CHOOSE A ROUTE
The intersection of Trafalgar, Hope and Waterloo roads was known as millionaires’ corner, with mansions located at the four corners towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. This intersection has been mentioned in several articles, but the emphasis has been on George Stiebel (1821-1896), first coloured millionaire, and his Devon House built in 1881. This replaced the old rectory house at Devon Pen.
Melrose Lodge – This house was the residence of Melrose Pen at the corner of Waterloo and Hope roads, now the new Popeye’s, the Salvation Army HQ and the Nigerian High Commission. It is not clear, so far, who originally owned Melrose Pen.
