Cinnamon Bay Plantation was one of the earliest plantations established on St. John. In 1733, Daniel Jenson, the owner of Cinnamon Bay, played a role in the slave rebellions that was so strong that it took force from both the French and the English to put it down.


Tours of the ruins of Cinnamon Bay take visitors through the horse mill, the "Bagasse Shed," the slave quarters, two cemeteries, a warehouse, and more.
