The Estate Whim Plantation Museum, billed as the only sugar plantation museum in the Virgin Islands, is set on magnificently landscaped grounds occupying 12 acres of what was formerly a 150-acre property. The restored early-18th-century buildings include a great house, fully restored windmill, and sugar-factory ruins that are open to visitors and can be toured alone or with a docent. Sugarcane still grows in one of the plantation gardens.
Step back in time with a visit to this restored sugar plantation. The historic site, set among rolling hills just outside of Frederiksted, encompasses a stone windmill, cookhouse and slave quarters. The Great House, a coral-walled structure built in the 1760s, is home to a museum, with antique furniture, china, silverware and artwork.
