Joseph Family House

Joseph Family Home
The Joseph Family Home, Belmont Circular Road

This building is estimated to be one hundred and six years old and was removed from Norfolk Street, board by board, nail by nail and erected at its present location on Belmont Circular Road at the mouth of Providence Girls’ Catholic School. It is the original home of a local family line of Josephs.

Antiguan Theophilus Payne Joseph, settled in Belmont, Trinidad with his wife Josephine and started their family line in the early 20th century. The home is still in possession of the Joseph family, which currently has over 80 members who are directly descended from Theophilus and Josephine. The house itself remains one of the oldest and most distinctive structures in Belmont, having changed little from its original form, even after years of exposure to the elements and relocation.
