Jamaica Sights



Devon House Review

Built in 1881 as the mansion of the island's first black millionaire, who made his fortune from gold mining in South America, Devon House was bought and restored by the Jamaican government in the 1960s. Inside it's filled with period furnishings, such as Venetian-crystal chandeliers and period reproductions. You can only visit the two-story mansion on a guided tour. On the grounds you can find some of the island's best crafts shops, as well as one of the few mahogany trees to have survived Kingston's ambitious but not always careful development.
