St. Croix History & Culture


DID YOU KNOW... History abounds in St. Croix. The St. Croix Heritage Trail has been named one of the 50 National Millennium Legacy Trails in America. The St. Croix Heritage Trail is a 72-mile-long driving tour of historic sites on the island. Stops include architectural ruins, preservations and restorations of the 18th and 19th centuries including Fort Frederik, Fort Christianvaern, The Christiansted National Historic Site, Government House, and the Apothecary Museum, remnants of the once-bustling sugar industry including the Whim Plantation Museum, Lawaetz Family Museum, Estate La Grange, and the Cruzan Rum Factory.

The Trail also includes Point Udall, the easternmost point under the American flag and Columbus Landing where Columbus' fleet landed on his second voyage to the new world in 1493.

The Millennium Legacy Trails project is funded with a $520,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Arts and administered by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies. The 50 trails are in 47 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

The St. Croix Heritage Trail is a public-private sector partnership with USVI Tourism, the St. Croix Chamber of Commerce and the St. Croix Landmarks Society. Other sites of interest include St Croix Leap where you can learn about the art of mahogany wood carving and botanical attractions such as Cruzan Gardens and the St. George Village Botanical Gardens.
