Fodor's Review

Standing eerily just east of downtown Provo are the remains of an 18th-century 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. A short tour by an associate from the Turks & Caicos National Trust will fill in the historical details for history buffs. Contact the Trust to visit; there’s a nominal fee that goes toward preserving the nation’s heritage. If this piques your interest, a visit to the North Caicos Wades Green plantation or the Turks and Caicos National Museum in Grand Turk will provide more of the story.
