Sites of historic and cultural significance are featured in our Sunday afternoon Places That Matter / Ruins Rambles that let you walk in the footsteps of people who lived and worked on those sites. The programs are led by historians, architects, archaeologists and others who are passionate about and committed to preserving the very best of St. Croix. Oral tradition bearers with family ties to the site also share their stories.

These rambles are an enjoyable way to learn about St. Croix History and about people and places on St. Croix and meet others who share your interest.

Format

There are 6-8 visits to Places That Matter per year, and are usually presented monthly from November to May.

Each Ramble follows a similar format: We assemble at the site. Following a brief overview of the history of the property by a knowledgeable guide, the hike takes us to ruins and points of interest on the property.  The historic interpretation and hike usually take from 60 to 90 minutes. Refreshments of local fruit drinks, wine, cheese and assorted breads and crackers round out the afternoon.
