It is cool that they have refurbished a sugar mill. Problem is that it is in the middle of nowhere so it takes a bit to get there and there is really not much other than what you see in your picture here.

This site gives you a good idea how life was on the island back in the early 1800's. Lot's of history here. Too bad more of these locations have not been properly restored for visitors!

Stopped at the Betty's Hope Sugar Plantation with our Pink Pather Jeep tour. It was okay. Don't need more than 20 minutes here.

Set aside about 20 to 30 minutes to visit a classic historical site. I believe this has been marked as a heritage site. See how things got done before electricity.

This is the remains of a sugar plantation. Interesting information and friendly staff. A part of history that needs to be seen.

My wife and I stopped by here as part of an island tour. There is a small museum/info area as well as two restored windmills. Other than that there is not a lot to see. It is worth a stop, however I would not make...More
