Botany Bay Ruins

There are about 20 sites on St. Thomas designated on the National Registry of Historic Places; an official list of places that are considered historic and worthy of preservation. Included are ruins of several former plantation estates like Estates Brewers Bay, Perseverance and Nisky; archeological districts; and two privately owned historic homes. Venus Hill, a masonry obelisk marking the site of the 1882 St. Thomas observations of the transit of Venus by a Brazilian expedition is on the list. Charlotte Amalie and Hassel Island Historic Districts are too. Fort Christian, the St. Thomas Synagogue and Skysborg (Blackbeard’s Castle) are designated Historic Landmarks. They are located in Charlotte Amalie and are the most accessible of the sites on St. Thomas listed on the Registry.
