While Annaberg is small, it is a worthy stop for an hour. If you go before around 2PM, you will find Charles tending to his gardens. He spent a lot of time showing us his flowers and plants and even cut fresh coconut and sugar cane for us! What a sweet man who cares for and has a lot of... More

One of the larger and better preserved plantation ruins. Also offers a great view of Leinster Bay and the BVI.

The park service is doing a great job keeping the Annaberg Plantation accessible to the whole public. It gives you a great perspective of the way the island was 250 years ago. If you go to St John you should stop by and see it,and the view is amazing up there.

Every time we come to St.John, we visit the Annaberg Plantation. The hike up is very bearable, even my 5 yr old was having fun going up and down the boarded dock. The amount of history on this plantation leaves you speechless. There are boarded signs with history remarks all over the plantation. The windmill is beautiful, and like previously... More

We visited the Annaberg Sugar Plantation while on an island sightseeing tour of St. John. We were prepared for the walk uphill along uneven paths but did notice others who were not. The buildings are well maintained for ruins. There a placards that give information about the site.

The ruins of the old sugar mill is beautifull situated on the cost and is a fascinating reminder of the sugarproduction- and slave era. It is a fine place with several ruins. Some signs with explanations. No entrance fee. Note, that away from the main site, there is the ruin of the school, and if you look closely further up... More

If you are driving (or hiking) through the national park on St. John, this is an interesting place to stop. Not only does it give you a look into the island's past, there are beautiful vistas of the surrounding islands as well. When we were there, a man was cutting up pieces of sugar cane, mango and other tropical fruits... More

The ruins here are great and well-marked, but you'll definitely want to stop by the park headquarters and pick up a map of the site. We went in the off-season and the guard booth was empty, which was great for free parking. There are lovely views of the surrounding islands from beneath the tower on-site.
