In addition to the beautiful grounds of its largest museums, the St. Croix Landmarks Society protects green spaces at Estate Prospect Hill and Estate Washington Hill.
Through the St. Croix Heritage Trail and education programs such as Places That Matter, we create awareness of and encourage preservation of these and similar sites. We support legislation before the Congress of the United States to designate St. Croix as a National Heritage Area.
The St. Croix Heritage Trail traverses the entire 28 mile length of St. Croix, linking the historic towns of Frederiksted and Christiansted, the fertile central plain, the mountainous Northside, and the arid East End. The route, which follows modernized 18th century roads, offers a cross section of the island's history, culture, landscapes, and outdoor activities.
The Trail traces the evolution of the island from days of sugar cane and cotton cultivation to cattle farms, homesteads, suburban communities, industrial complexes and tourist resorts.
The Heritage Trail is a self-guided experience that allows you to explore the island at your own pace.
