#12 of 13 in Historic Sites in St. Croix
Estate Little Princess is a historic plantation site located northwest of Christiansted in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. It was first owned by governor Frederik Moth in 1738 and rests on 25 acres of land (from the original 200 acres). As of 2011 the estate is under ownership of The Nature Conservancy and serves as headquarters for the Eastern Caribbean/Virgin Islands programs. The property has been turned into a nature preserve and historical tours are given as well. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 9, 1980.There are many buildings on the property, including a building that served as a Danish hospital and the great house, which was built in the 1800s. Both have been partially restored. Estate Little Princess was primarily a sugar and rum factory hundreds of years ago. There are many ruins (such as a windmill and remnants of the factory) located on the grounds of the estate. In the great house, a small exhibition with photographs, maps and other documents tells the history of the estate. Access is via the minor road leading north-west from the intersection of VI75 (Northside road) and VI74 (Rattan road) 2km northwest of Christiansted.

  • Had read that this was worth a visit. But was a little disappointed. It seemed like someone had just taken over and tried to do something about it, so they will probably be well continues. We reviewed quickly House (as I think someone who lived in, maybe the workers) and got the know that we had to go down to the beach. We took the tour through the Woods by a dense overgrown path, but it was definitely worth the trip. for team now up a lovely beach. We could not help but to jump in the waves.

Where to stay in St. Croix

Most accommodations on St. Croix line the island's north shore, with Christiansted and Salt River Bay proving the two most popular settlements. Private villas and condos make up the majority of accommodations there, offering privacy and independence, as well as a touch of luxury. For something a bit less touristy and close to Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge, stay in the western coastal town of Frederiksted.
