Tanjong Pagar Things to Do: 11 reviews and 43 photos
Dr J.W. Montgomerie, the first owner of Duxton Hill, cultivated nutmeg plantations on its slopes. Montgomerie died in 1856 and his land on Duxton was auctioned off. Fourteen acres went to Arab Syed Abdullah bin Omar Aljunied, who divided them into four lots which were leased to wealthy Chinese developers. By the 1890s, the developers had built two- and three-storey shophouses in Duxton Hill and the more affluent Chinese moved to the area.
Nowadays, you can still see the historical shophouses at Duxton Hill, many of them are well-preserved and converted into offices, hotels, restaurants and pubs.
