Dennis Bay Plantation, St John, USVI
View Original Description
Dennis Bay Plantation is located on the small peninsula that seperates Trunk and Hawknest Bay. The plantation house is the best preserved example of the traditional type within the V.I. National Park.
The plantation was claimed and cleared by 1728 and appears to have been devoted very early to the cultivation of sugar cane. The plantation buildings included a windmill tower and a horsemill sited on the high bluff on the west side of the peninsula, both post-dating 1800, while the rest and older buildings of the plantation are clustered on the shoreline of Dennis Bay between 200 and 250 yards east-northeast of the windmill tower.
