Standing eerily just west of downtown Provo are the remains of a circa-1700 cotton plantation owned by the Loyalist Thomas Stubbs. A trail weaves through the ruins, where a few interpretive signs tell the story of the island's doomed cotton industry, with little information about the plantation itself. A variety of local plants are also identified. The lack of context can be disappointing for history buffs; a visit to North Caicos Wades Green plantation or the Turks &
Caicos National Museum could well prove a better fit.
