Fort Patience

Fort Patience - Apam

In the late 17th century, the small state of Acorn - sandwiched between the larger British allies of Agona and Fante sought to have a strong fort built on its territory to defend it in case of attack.
The Dutch, while willing to erect a fort at Apam, were in no position to build a large one.

Building of the fort commenced in 1697 on the summit of a promontory close to a sheltered

beach and bay.
However, disagreement between the two sides concerning the form of the fort delayed its completion until 1702.
Hence the name they gave to the fort - Lijdzaamheid, meaning patience.

The initial structure was a "small two-storey house". Between 1701 and 1721, this was
Strengthened with two demi-bastions at diametrically opposite corners.
