Estate Mount Washington Plantation

The owners of the Estate Mount Washington Plantation, while surveying the property, discovered the ruins of a sugar plantation beneath the rain-forest brush.  What they discovered is the island of St. Croix’s best-preserved sugar plantation and one of the highlights of the St. Croix Heritage Trail.  It flourished from 1780 to 1820, when St. Croix was the second-largest producer of sugar in the West Indies.  (Click here to learn more about life on a Caribbean Sugar Plantation) The on-site private residence is closed to the public, but there is a self-guided tour of the 13 acre site.
