St. Thomas Sights


Haagensen House Review

This lovingly restored house was built in the early 1800s by Danish entrepreneur Hans Haagensen. It's surrounded by an equally impressive cookhouse, outbuildings, and terraced gardens. A lower-level banquet hall showcases antique prints and photographs. Guided tours begin at the nearby Hotel 1829, then continue here. The tour includes stops at other restored 19th-century houses, a rum factory, amber museum, and finally, the lookout tour at Blackbeard's Castle.
