Ascension Island Government building

Ascension Island / Africa

The Ascension Island Government Building is the office of the British Administrator, the island having had an Administrator since 1964. It is a two storey stone building with an internal upstairs gallery and serves as the headquarters of A.I.G.’s administration and finance team. The building was originally a Petty Officers’ Mess, built between 1899 and 1903. Before that the site was occupied by a cottage with a tank and store on the south east side. Since then it has been variously, the offices of the Eastern Telegraph Company, a hostel and a newspaper office. Marc Holland, the Administrator, laid the foundation disc of the Queen’s Walkway, outside the AIG Building on 17 November 2015.
