Near the beach at Leinster Bay are ruins of many structures, which had been a sugar plantation, and later, a cattle farm. In June of 1993 and June of 1994, Caribbean Volunteer Expeditions measured and photographed these ruins for the Virgin Island National Park. We drew a site plan, and floor plans and exterior elevations of the sugar factory building. Because the area was so overgrown, it was extremely difficult to accurately measure the site. We '.vould recommend th.at the area be cleared further, so that a more accurate site plan can be mapped, and the ruins, photographed. Furthermore, we were only able to look at walls and nrins in the immediate area near the factory building; a further more extensive search of the entire area would be useful in identifying all the various buildings of this large plantation complex. There were many structures and walls in the area. Most of the walls were rubble stone, often with coral and brick comers; some walls had a plastered finish. Some of the walls were twenty feet high, and many were two feet thick. In some cases later infill of rubble loose stones had been done in the older masonry. Buildings: A. Sugar Factory Building., This large ruin consists of a cross shaped building, about 70 by 108 feet long. There is a boiling area and cistern, as well as other rooms The walls are rubble stone, sometimes with plaster remaining. The comers were constructed of large rectangular coral or stone blocks. Openings for doors and windows are splayed and also made from large coral or stone pieces. The building is on two levels. B. Animal Round. A large grinding area is situated on the hill close to the factory building. 8 foot high curved retaining walls define a 70 foot diameter circle Near the center are smaller walls, where the grinding machinery might have been located. C Well. A 16 foot high by 6 foot inside diameter well structure sits just northeast of the factory building. A large portion of the wall is severely deteriorated and should be stabilized.

D. Bam. A rectangular building of about 70 feet by 45 feet is defined by 8 foot high walls on two sides. These walls have beam pockets in them. E Small Structure This building is about 25 feet by 14 feet, with 11 foot high walls in the rear. Part of the wood roof members and galvanized roofing remain, but have fallen in. F. Walls. There are several retaining walls on this sloped site, of about 4 to 6 feet Some of these walls were part of a building : they are plastered and have evidence of depressions which had timber members attached to them. G. Trough. There is a 5 2 foot long plastered trough to the north west of the factory building. H Small Structure A fairly intact building about 15 by 16 feet remains near the beach The walls are plastered; there is a gable roof of wood with galvani z ed roofing, which is still in place. 1. Pier. A 6 foot high pier with a pyramid top is at the end of a long retaining wall. J Well. A 14 foot diameter circle with two foot high walls. -----
