This grand, if challenging to maintain, 17th century home is architecturally remarkable for its curved, Palladian double staircase leading to a Georgian, two-storey entrance hall, and for its octagonal tower that contains a hurricane shelter. From 1910, the plantation was owned by an inventor who was the first black property owner in St. John. It now houses the Center for Complementary Medicine.Directions
