Old Scale House

Write Review
Scale House

Through the gates photographed here you enter a room will a large scale, thus the name scale house. The scale house saw countless hogheads of sugar pass through in the colonial days. The sugar was weighed and taxed before being shipped to Denmark, America and various European countries. The building was also used to inspect imported goods. Since the beginning of Danish settlement a scale house was part of waterfront trading scenes. This scale house was built between 1855-1856 and is located right on the Christiansted waterfront.
