Schofield Residence
The Schofield residence was constructed in the early 1880's when mature mahogany was still thriving in the forests of northern Belize which ensured its longevity into the 21st century. It has survived many hurricanes including category 5 Hurricane Janet in 1955. It was built with many windows to capture the refreshing breeze of the sea.The structure was first a home but it also served as the headquarters for the Schofield family who were the owners of the Goshen and Pembroke Hall Estates (Corozal Town and area). Mr. Thomas Schofield became the owner of the Estate when Mr. John Carmichael was unable to pay back a loan from Schofield to buy the estates from Anglo-French Company. Mr. Carmichael transferred the land to Schofield. Mr. Ernest Schofield (pictured here) inherited the estate from his father Thomas. Eventually the grandson of Ernest, William Schofield inherited and in 1956 sold the estate to the Government of Belize after the devastation of 1955's Hurricane Janet, but retained his residence in the Schofield's house. In 1980 the grandchildren of William Schofield sold the house and property to the Catholic mission. It has been utilized by the Catholic mission in various ways including a resource centre, classroom, conference space and living quarters for nuns from Mexico
doing pastoral work in Corozal.
