One love, One heart, let’s get together and feel alright
Nine Mile is a quaint little village tucked away in the beautiful mountains of St. Ann, Jamaica.
It is here, on Feb. 6, 1945, the legendary ‘King of Reggae’ was born. And it is in
this very same place that he was later laid to rest.
On reaching Nine Mile, you’ll experience the pleasant, friendly “vibes” that
influenced Bob Marley to write lyrics for songs such as ‘One Love’ and ‘Three Little Birds’.
Come see Nine Mile is owned and operated by Bob’s Family. It is not unusual to find
his mother, affectionately known as Mother B, personally greeting visitors, sometimes even being
persuaded to relate stories of her son’s childhood. And, if not Mother B, there is always Uncle
Lloyd who is never too far away or too busy to tell tales of young Nesta.
Come be the actual tour starts with a
walk through the very same house that Bob lived in as young boy (now a memorabilia and photo
gallery). Your Rastafarian guide will share with you little known insights into the Bob Marley’s
childhood and musical career. You’ll even have a chance to stand on “Mt. Zion Rock” (Bob’s
meditation spot), rest your head on the “Pillow” (made famous in the song “Talkin Blues”). The
highlight of the tour is of course walking through the beautiful mausoleum, Bob’s final resting
With Bob our Nine Mile tour will introduce you to a community that helped influence
one of the greatest musicians of this century. It will leave you with a better understanding of a
young man, whose vision helped change the thoughts of people worldwide. No small achievement for a
man who often spoke of his respect for the simple ways of rural life. Respect that helped guides
his life. Respect instilled during his youthful days in the small mountain village locals still
call Nine Mile.
