This is where the famous Bond of 1844 was
signed but it lies in ruins. This is a national
monument which could serve as biggest
tourist site in Ghana . And the District Assembly
appears to be unconcerned about this beautiful history background.
The Bond of 1844 was an agreement signed
between Fante chiefs and the British
government. It was signed on 6 March 1844in Ghana, which was then known as the Gold Coast.
The bond was signed by Commander
Hill (then Colonial governor) and eight fante chiers who came from Assin, Denkyira,Abora, Anumabu and Cape Coast. Later eleven other chiefs signed the treaty who were the chiefs of Dixcove, Wassa, Fiase,Gomoa and James Town,Accra.
Military confrontations between Ashanti and the Fante contributed to the growth of British influence on the Gold Coast, as the Fante states, concerned about Ashanti activities on the coast signed the Bond of 1844 at Fomena
Adansi, that allowed the British to usurp
judicial authority from African courts.
