Windberg Ruins

This plantation is one location where slaves refused to work. In 1831, slaves disobeyed the overseer and sent the plantation into disorder. However, the island administrator at the time stepped in and took control of the plantation, ending the short lived revolt.


Visitors to the area will be able to freely roam the area exploring all the ruins that they come across.
