Folly Great house was a grand mansion built about a hundred years ago by an American heir who had more money than sense. He built it for the woman he loved but was in such a hurry that he so pressured the workers that they used sea sand to mix the concrete. When the lady came to Jamaica to see their would be love nest it had already started to fall apart as a result of the sea sand used in it's construction. The lady rejected the heir and returned to the U.S. He is said to have committed suicide. The house or rather it's ruins are real. The story itself is part real and part legend. What cannot be contested is that it has fallen into ruinate and is mostly a hang out for idlers. A beautiful spot and a great story. One more wasted Jamaican asset.
