1 | Fort Frederik
Built in the 1700's by the Colonial Danish Government, Fort Frederik originally stood to defend the western coast against invasion from other European powers. Rather than wars and sieges, Fort Frederik is today remembered as the site of the Emancipation Revolt in 1848 and the Labor Riot in 1878, both which paved the way for free and fair labor laws on St. Croix.
This historical site can be found on the bay, and is three miles (five kilometers) to the west of the center of Allandale.

2 | Buddhoe Park
Named after the great emancipator of St. Croix Moses Buddhoe Gottlieb, this is a laid back urban park that makes for a nice stroll to compliment a day of exploration. Those who visit the park will be able to follow small trails, relax on benches, and observe the bust of Buddhoe Gottlieb, who on July 3, 1848 gathered 6000 slaves and demanded freedom.
Visitors will find this park near the heart of Frederiksted, less than a hundred yards (less than a hundred meters) from Fort Frederik.
1 | Caribbean Arts Museum
Set in a historic building on the Frederiksted waterfront, the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts (CMCArts) is not only a museum, but a cultural center at which local residents can enjoy arts and culture.

Guests will be able to find this museum at 10 Strand Street, about a hundred yards (a couple hundred meters) from the center of Frederiksted.
