Built during an era of elegance and brutality, Greenwood has retained the atmosphere of the 19th century and continues to capture the imagination of its visitors. The house was built by the Barretts of Wimpole Street London in 1800. Unique among local plantation houses, Greenwood survived unscathed during the slave rebellion of Christmas 1831. It still has most of its original furniture including the largest and rarest collection of musical instruments and books in the island.

Looots of history here. It feels like you are transported back in time. Everything is very well preserved and it is obvious the owner takes great interest in history and has done her homework. Tour guides pleasant.
