Frenchtown

Overall Rating

General Impression
 
4.5

Frenchtown was settled by immigrants from the French Caribbean island of St. Barthelemy in the late 1800's through mid 1900's. The area became a fishing village. The French community has preserved a high degree of cultural identity including their fishing traditions. In the early morning you can watch fishermen coming in with their small fishing boats, or cleaning and selling their catches from the dock and from the Quetel Fish Market. In the middle of Frenchtown is a hill crowned by St. Ann's Catholic Church. The small French Heritage Museum in Frenchtown is worth a stop if it’s open. Frenchtown is a popular spot for its assortment of bars and restaurants, from casual to chic!
