The city of Cap-Haitian in 1881

Cap Haitian's introduction to history was in December of 1492, when, upon arriving on Haiti's north coast, Christopher Columbus and his flagship, the Santa Maria, collided with the coral reef. The damage to the vessel was extensive enough to sink the legendary ship, and its remains are said to still lie beneath the sea today in nearby Limonade Pass. Columbus and his fellow travelers would create a settlement in Cap Haitian before moving on to Santo Domingo in the present-day Dominican Republic.
