Old Boma of Bagamoyo:
The Old Boma of Bagamoyo is one of the many historical buildings that are within the old town conservation area of Bagamoyo. It used to be an old state house that was built by the Germans at the end of the 19th century, with the sole purpose of being a residence for its leaders in the area. It was only used by them for a few years before their capital was moved to then Mzizima or currently known as Dar es Salaam, due to the shallow water depth of the Bagamoyo port.
It was again used by the British after their takeover of the German colonies from 1919 until 1961 when the country got its independence. Since then, it has been under the jurisdiction of the Tanzanian government although it was never used as a state house since 1961. In 1995 it was turned into a historical building.
