Good Hope Great House

The Good Hope Great House is the main historic building of John Tharp, owner of the most land and slaves of Jamaica's sugar industry. The Great House is fully restored and includes around 2000 acres of land. Visitors will be able to explore the grazing area for livestock as well as work the Good Hope orchards.


This old Great House clearly has an old-plantation build to it. Luckily, the restoration work has saved the Good Hope Great House from the damage of time and Jamaican weather.
