We stopped by because we wanted to get a close up look at a sugar mill for free (there are dozens on private property on the island). It was hard to find it's a few hundred yards down a poorly paved road to the right of the Pueblo supermarket outside of Christiansted. There were actually quite a few ruins from... More

We were the only visitors one recent afternoon. We were lucky enough to get a long tour from Richard, who is the land steward for the Nature Conservancy. He knew so much about the local flora & fauna. He answered all of our questions about the local history, the birds, animals and trees on both inland & ocean parts of... More

It's hard to find with no sighs leading the way. The people working there seems surprised when somebody does trip across the place. They're nice and welcoming enough, but there isn't really much to see. One building is basically their office space, the other has a handful of old photos on the wall explaining the history of the plantation that... More

The Nature Conservancy does great work and we went to see their headquarters which are in an old plantation and sugar and rum factory.

If you want to see a piece of history then you must visit the Little Princess Estate. It was a great little hideaway from the rest of the world.

We ventured out to this location on an overcast day with rain in the air. We were the only ones there so were fortunate to have an informative and accommodating employee named Richard who spent a few hours guiding us around the grounds and buildings, telling many stories about the history of the plantation, the local flora and other fascinating...

From a historical point of view it is interesting. You take a self guided walk around the buildings and rum factory (in ruins) and then leave. Other than that I would prefer to do something else

Some nice short hiking trails. Usually not busy and you can really get the feeling for what an estate life was 200 years ago.
