By all accounts, the value of cash and treasure, albeit ill-gotten, that flowed through the small city of Port Royal, a century before the United States of America became reality, was then above and beyond the total output of goods and services of most countries. Its ribald history and legendary infamous characters have been mirrored in 20th Century movie epics, giving Port Royal vast tourism potential. The sleepy little 17th Century town, rich in superlatives and famous beyond measure, is ready for epic development of the magnitude that could make it, once again, famous.
