Jamaica is a popular destination for relaxation, but it also has a fascinating and engaging history.

Rose Hall, one of the island’s most famous properties and it’s a beautiful (and fun) place to learn about the colonial aspect of Jamaica’s history.

Built in 1770, the Rose Hall Great House has long been considered one of Jamaica’s most impressive mansions.

Today, Rose Hall is most famous for the stories about it’s wicked old mistress, Annie Palmer, best known as the White Witch of Rose Hall. Legend has it that she murdered her three husbands along with many more slaves, while she was alive. It’s said that her ghost still haunts the Rose Hall Great House, and if you take a nighttime tour of the property, you might catch a glimpse of her! And if you don’t get to see old Annie Palmer, you’ll get to hear some truly bone-chilling stories.

Finish up your tour with a drink in Rose Hall’s tavern, which is located in what was once a dungeon.

History, ghost stories, a dungeness tavern -- and that’s not all....The Rose Hall Estate boasts three world class golf courses, which are considered some of the finest in the Caribbean and the world.
