This sugar mill had some of the best ruins on the island, however not something to spend a large amount of time seeing. Be careful on the stairs up the mill, some of the boards are kind of loose.

Annaberg Sugar plantation is really worth seeing. It's quite a ways north, kind near the end of the road, but it's really in pretty good shape. There's a giant mill and even some of the pots they boiled the cane in still exist. The tour tells a great story of how the plantation got started and ended up. And from... More

When you need a break from the beach while in St. John, go visit this small bit of island history. Only takes an hour to walk through the remains of this old sugar mill and it's worth it. Looks like the hurricanes have taken their toll a bit but it's still a wonderful place to walk around. You'll enjoy great... More

A must see if you care about the history of the island. This was our second trip to the sugar mill and we saw different birds and plants this trip. Super place for photos

Rich in history of the sugar mills of the island. High on a hill you get to see the British Virgin Islands.

This is pretty much torn down and little remains of the plantation. A walk up from the parking area to the main ruins is about all you need to do.
