Wades Green Plantation

At one time in history, North Caicos was considered to be "Plantation Country," and today Wades Green stands as the most well-preserved of the remaining plantation properties on the island.

What to Expect

What remains of the plantation today is ruins of the main stone house, several outbuildings, and the walls that surround the property. Unpaved paths lead through the ruins, which can make it a slightly difficult trek, but there are tiled plaques describing the buildings and their significance.

Examples of the agriculture that was once grown and tended to by the slaves here can still be seen throughout the property. The occasional sea-island cotton plant still sprouts up, as do isal and papaya.
