Fodor's Expert Review Cheshire Hall

Downtown Ruins

Just east of downtown Provo are the eerie remains of an 18th-century cotton plantation owned by the Loyalist Thomas Stubbs. A trail weaves through the ruins, where guided interpretive tours tell the story of the island's doomed cotton industry and about the plantation itself. A variety of local plants are also identified. Contact the Turks & Caicos National Trust to visit; there’s a $10 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.
