A conceptual design for public use and sustainability was developed for a prominent historic site owned by Bahamas Catholic Diocese. The concept plan for public use was prepared with sensitivity to The Hermitage's spiritual characteristics and current use by parishioners, and included strategies for safe visitation by tourists to Cat Island. The plan was sponsored by the Antiquities, Monuments, and Museums Corporation of The Bahamas.
