Betty’s Hope

One of the oldest sugar plantations on Antigua is now a museum. Founded in 1651, the large estate grew and processed sugar for nearly 250 years. The chief attraction on-site is the pair of towering windmills that have been restored. (One of the sugar mills even has sails and working crushers.) Other highlights include ancient tools and gears. A visitor center positioned in a former cotton storehouse here showcases artifacts and maps of the estate, as well as historical tokens of the plantation.
