Greenwood Great House Tours

Greenwood Great House
Take a walk through an unique piece of Jamaican and literary history with a tour of the Greenwood Great House, built in the late 1700s by Richard Barrett, a cousin of poet Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, whose family was among Jamaica’s original colonial settlers. Nearby Rose Hall often overshadows Greenwood Great House, but in fact Greenwood is better preserved, with many of the original furnishings still intact, including the library, a collection of Dresden china, and haunting relics from the original owner’s slave holding past, like a 6-foot-long, steel man-trap for catching runaways.

Practical Info

These tours offer an intimate look at the house, which was built primarily for entertaining, even cranking up the original polyphones so you can imagine the island’s Victorian-era elites waltzing in the ballroom.
