The beautifully restored great house of the island’s oldest sugar plantation was built to last, with 3-foot-thick walls of coral, stone, and molasses. All around, tropical greenery threatens to swallow up the plantation structures—which include a sugar factory and restored windmill—and before the estate became a landmark, it almost did. Inside, the great house has only three rooms, but each is filled with antiques from the era. You can tour the house and 12-acre grounds, and look for special ongoing events held here by the St. Croix Landmarks Society, such as evening concerts and arts and crafts shows. Check the website (www.stcroixlandmarks.com) to see what’s happening. It also has a fabulous museum store on the premises, selling all manner of original island souvenirs.
