Since 1967, a local family has accumulated and preserved eight centuries-old estates, in downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USVI. This unique compilation includes Estate Skytsborg aka: Blackbeard’s Castle, Haagensen House, Brittania House, Villa Notman, Mendlicott Estate, Hotel 1829, Bank House and the Magens-Pedersen Estate. The grounds, restored homes and botanical gardens are absolutely stunning.
The estates are currently being used as a historic walking tour and Bed & Breakfast. The historical significance behind each of the eight properties is impressive as well as fascinating. All of the properties have either been homes to the wealthy and elite of the 18thand 19th centuries or protected the island from invaders.
The Magens-Pedersen estate is the only archaeological dig site in the entire Caribbean. The most recent excavation was performed by Syracuse University and led by Professor Douglas Armstrong. He has been involved in the dig and restoration for over a decade.
The complete site is made up of 20 separate parcels. Because of historic and sentimental value, the owner will only sell the entire compound to a sole buyer, one that will preserve these majestic estates.
From detailed historical findings to illustrative descriptions of each property, everything regarding each of the estates, and more, can be found on EstateSkytsborg.com.
