Now set on the grounds of one of Jamaica's most popular resorts, the Rose Hall Plantation attractions is whittled down to the infamous Rose Hall Great House.

The story goes that after 50 years of Rose Hall being in the Palmer family, John Rose Palmer and his new wife Anne, took over occupancy of the residence; but Annie had a dark secret: she was a witch! Annie and her alleged black magic would lead to his death as well as the death of two more husbands and too many lovers to name, sticking her with the nick name of the White Witch of Rose Hall. Still today, people claim that she haunts the great house.
