“Fascinating if you're interested in the history of the Danes on St. Croix.”
Don't be deterred by the entrance that appears to be closed off. The bridge was damaged in a storm in early 2011, and is still unsafe for cars....but the old house is only a couple hundred meters across.
The house has many original items from the extended Lawetz family who first came to St. Croix in the 1870's, and still live on the island. The guide was very knowledgeable, and the house gives a great representation of post-slavery colonial life. We accompanied a group of Danish tourists....apparently the Danes visit frequently, (with their own translator).
Water is available for $1.00 on site. (if can get very hot on the grounds) - the house - like most old West Indian buildings is amazing for the way it catches the cooling crosswinds.
You must be able to climb stairs to see the 2nd floor.
This is a better tour than Whim - and you're already 1/2 way to the beer drinking pigs up Mahogany Rd.
