As you walk from the boardwalk to the fort, you'll pass this building. It's got a scale in the middle and several (very worn) plaques outside and inside. Not much to see, but it's quaint and old and does provide some useful insight into the...More

We were greeted by one of the many chickens just running loose around the island, he only had one feather on his tail. He welcomed us to this small open air room with this giant scale. It weighed a lot of things in years past,...More

This was a quick stop on our historical walking tour of Christiansted. It has a timeline for Alexander Hamilton and a reprint of the now infamous letter he wrote after the devastating hurricane on St. Croix. It is fascinating to read. Definitely worth the stop....More

You would walk by this National Treasure and not know what it was until you look inside. History of the shipping trade in the 18-19th Centuries as well as the family tree of the James Hamilton Company.

We found this building to be interesting. Free to go inside and plenty to read. There is also an information desk and gift shop inside.

This is a two room gig, but its right in the middle of the waterfront and my best emotional connection to the early days of Alex Hamilton.

This is a small building with a information and the scales inside to get a start to your walking history of Christiansted. Make a stop to see where ships coming into port make their first stop.

Had no idea Alexander Hamilton was a St. Croix hometown boy. Plaque in scale house gave his entire background including his family tree and what happened to the rest of his family. A stop here at the end of the boardwalk was well worth the...More
