Fodor's 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. You can only visit the two-story mansion, furnished with Venetian-crystal chandeliers and period reproductions, on a guided tour. On the grounds there are two restaurants, crafts shops, a bakery, a wine bar, and one of the few mahogany trees to survive Kingston's ambitious but not always careful development.
