Love the timeline for St Croix and how St Croix helped shape the US. This National Park is in need of repair but it appears as they are facilitating those. Take a walk back in the past... visit the fort!

Very nice historic site right in the middle of Christiansted, VI. Only $7 to get in and a nice tour guide (written only, you have to give it back when finished). Great place to get views of the town and surrounding area.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
