Landrail Point is on the NW corner of Crooked Island.  The anchorage is slightly north of the point and just south of Pittstown.  Most believe that Columbus anchored and landed here on his first voyage and there seems to be less doubt about that landing than most of Columbus’ Bahamanian stops. 311 more words
