"The only urban archaeological dig
in the entire Caribbean" This is the only completely intact estate in St. Thomas. Located between Kongensgade and Dronningensgade, King and Queen Streets, was home to the prominent Major J.M. Magens and his seven children in the 1820s. When the children married and moved away, the property was auctioned to Duncan McDougal a merchant in hardware and imported custom ironwork...
The property consist of several garden terraces, historic buildings including the kitchen and tenant quarters, as well as the ruins of the main house. An archaeological team from Syracuse University is examining the material culture left by the family, tenants, servants and enslaved Africans to provide a better understanding of life in a bustling, historic Caribbean port town.
