St. Croix’s best-preserved sugar and cotton plantation was an island workhorse from 1780 to 1820, when sugar was king on St. Croix, then the second-largest sugar producer in the West Indies. The nine-bedroom great house is a private home and closed to the public, but you can go on a self-guided stroll of the 13 acres, where you’ll see the stone ruins of the plantation’s sugar factory, as well as the “cockpit” animal mill, where donkeys or horses would be utilized to crush the sugarcane.
