The legacy of Chatham began in the year 1789, when Lt. Archibald Blair landed here with the aim to establish a Naval Base. He started the survey from Chatham Island for establishing the British footholds in the Islands. Thus, Port Blair became the starting point of various activities to develop the Islands as a safe place to deport hard-core convicts and to develop the Harbour base.
The Chatham Saw Mill is one of the oldest in Asia. The 100 mtrs long Chatham Bridge connects Port Blair with Chatham Island. This historic bridge was initially constructed out of timber. Later, it was renovated to a modern bridge with concrete structures, which exists today. It is a store house of timber like Padauk, Gurjan, Marble, Satin Wood etc. Chatham has the second largest wharf of these islands, where Island-mainland ships can berth. Within the Saw Mill compound, the Forest Department has put up a museum showcasing the varied timber wealth of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The museum offers an insight into forest activities through scale models and display decorative pieces made of Padauk, Marble, Peauma, Gurjan, Satin Wood etc.
The museum is open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Sunday closed.
4. Cellular jail
CELLULAR JAIL ANDAMAN AND NICOBAR ISLANDS
The historic Cellular Jail, earlier known as Kaala paani, was built in an inhospitable environment by the Britishers in the late 18th Century.The structure was built with seven wing prison. Each wing was three storied. The building had a total of 663 cells with one prisoner in each cell. A central tower with seven wings spread across to keep watch on each wing. The idea was to make solitary confinement for prisoners. The prisoners were either the culprits who committed crimes in mainland or some political prisoners who were mainly freedom fighters. One guard could monitor the activities on all the seven wings. The other peculiar feature of the jail was the fact that each wing was confined into its own. Each wing was designed in such a way that the front of one wing faced the back of the other, hence, stopping any communications between the convicts. Sadly, utter solitary confinement was not the only thing that the prisoners were faced with. The brutal beatings, labor and lack of food was enough to break the health and spirit of these prisoners.
