Discover the history of Liberia on Providence Island, a small landmass best known as the place where liberated American slaves arrived after returning to Africa. The first group landed on the tiny island in 1822, and went on to form the ethnic group Americo-Liberians. Take a walk around the island, and don't miss its landmark--a tree made from weapons that symbolizes the end of Liberia's civil wars. Our Monrovia trip maker tool makes visiting Providence Island and other Monrovia attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Interesting . Good to see and understand the beginning of Liberia
  • A very historic place. The Island where the free slaves from the United States of America settled when they were brought by a ship called the Mayflower. It has the Oldest well in Monrovia.
