Catherineberg Ruins

One of the first settled properties in the U.S. Virgin Islands was the Catherineberg Farm, and the property served as a sugar plantation throughout much of the 18th and 19th centuries. Although the farm was eventually given over to grazing cattle, now it serves as a reminder of what a plantation in the Virgin Islands once was.


Visitors who tour this property will encounter 18th century era factory buildings, a windmill tower, a horse mill, and ruins of other plantation buildings.
