Trip Planner: Caribbean / Antigua and Barbuda / Antigua / Saint John Parish / St. John's / Betty's Hope
See an important Antiguan historical site at Betty's Hope, the ruins of the island's first large sugar plantation. Established in 1650 during the years of British colonial rule, the plantation used slave labor in the large-scale production of sugar for generations. The site now functions as an open-air museum focused on commemorating the many lives exploited here. Two restored windmills once used to extract juice from sugarcane dominate the grounds; elsewhere you'll find a cistern complex, along with the ruins of the old estate house, a boiling house, and a distillery. Come with a tour or visit on your own; consider reading up on the history in advance as the signage may not cover all the details.
