The Old Boma in Bagamoyo, situated along the central coast of Tanzania, was built by the Germans in 1895. The BOMA served as administrative headquarters for German East Africa until 1919. After the Versailles Treaty which marked the end of the German rule in Tanganyika/Tanzania, the BOMA was renamed ‘English BOMA’ and the British colonial government used it as an administrative building. 

After independence in 1961, the BOMA served as an office for the District Commissioner and continued to serve the same purpose until 1997 when its use stopped due to continued collapsing. Fortunately, between 2010 and 2014, the entire BOMA was renovated.
