Disappointing as we were trying to find out information on old plantations on Nevis and the staff didn't really help much.

In restored stable from grounds of Alexander Hamilton's birthplace, with historical exhibits from original Indian settlements through pirates and colonial settlement and plantations. Worth the price of admission, which includes Alexander Hamilton's birthplace house on the grounds.
