Accompong is the only Maroon village
which has retained its original name and was founded in 1739, just
after the First Maroon War. The photo on the right shows a group of
Maroons including Colonel Peddie under the "Kindah Tree" (loosely
translated as "family tree").
Accommodation in the Maroon community at Accompong is available at Mystic Pass Villas.
Accompong was Cudjoe's brother and the name is said to derive from the Ashanti Nyamekopon meaning "the lone one, the warrior".
