Rose Hall Great House

Built in the latter part of the 18th century, Rose Hall is the most well-known great house in all of Jamaica. The massive Georgian mansion is the centerpiece of a plantation that covers over 6,500 acres, but it's most notable for its famous occupant, Annie Palmer, better known as the White Witch of Rose Hall.

Said to have dabbled in witchcraft, Annie Palmer allegedly poisoned her three husbands. Stories allege that she routinely took slaves as lovers and had them killed when she grew tired of them. She was supposedly smothered with a pillow in her bed in 1830s by a vengeful slave.

As such, the house is steeped in folktales and supernatural claims. While these stories are just that, the house itself is a testament to the wealth, pomp and grandeur of plantation-era Jamaica.

Practical Info

Tours of Rose Hall Great House describe the furnishings and their historical context, but they also focus on the ghost stories, and the bar on the ground floor (Annie's Pub) is notorious for its "Witches Brew," a powerful libation said to make a person more attractive to Annie. Indeed, the gift shop contains pictures and letters from guests that lend credence to the house's supernatural claims.
