Insider Tip

Parts of the Great House date from the 1650s, when a Knight of Malta established a tobacco-and-indigo plantation on the site. He situated the Great House slightly behind a hilltop to conceal it from pirates. As a boy, Alexander Hamilton lived there, as did St. Croix's first Danish governor.
