The paper analyses the state of Ughoton after he British invasion of 1897. It examines the survival of the political institutions after the invasion. It discusses Ughoton as a tourist centre, the strengthening of Christianity and other traditional dieties. It also focused on the discovering of oil and the relevance of Niger Delta Development Commission to the advancement of the community. The researcher used primary and secondary sources. The primary sources include oral interview and archival materials while the secondary sources were books, newspapers, articles, theses and dissertations. The study found that the houses destroyed during the war were rebuilt and a new chief priest of Olokun temple appointed when Oba Eweka II came to the throne in Benin in 1914. Again the discovering of ‘oil in Ughoton was an added advantage to its quick recovering. It was found that Ughoton became a tourist centre and the issue of religion was given a serious boost.
