Balestier Heritage Trail

Sixteen trail markers are placed at notable sites in Balestier, providing locals and tourists the history of its origins.



The history of Balestier, a district named after Joseph Balestier, dates back to the mid-19th century where he was the first American consul and the owner of a sugar plantation.


Purposefully designed to be conspicuous, the trail markers are paired with bright, vibrant colors attracting the attention of trail walkers and passersby. Architecture elements combined and formed into a collage featured on the front panel of the marker. Each carefully selected and extracted from notable structures that carry a piece of history of Balestier.
