GROSSE ÎLE

Eastern part

  
Example HR
The Guard House. This is the first thing someone leaving the western portion of the island encounters. Or should I say, trying to enter the eastern part. Travel between the sick quarters located at the east end and the rest of the island was strictly controlled for obvious reasons. After the Guard House, going east, the central part of the island contains houses for the staff and their family, a Catholic chapel and an Anglican chapel, a school, the Marconi telegraph station and modern buildings erected in 1965 by the Department of Agriculture when they selected the island to quarantine imported animals.
