Greenwood Great House Tour Jamaica


Sitting high on the hill with sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea, Greenwood Great House was built in 1780’s by the enormously wealthy Richard Barrett, a cousin of the famous poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Greenwood is one of the best preserved examples of the plantation era Jamaican Great House. More than 200 great houses were destroyed by the slave revolt of 1831.

The Greenwood Great House is among the very few that were spared from being torched because of the wealth and influence of the plantation owner.
