Annaberg is a hotspot on St. John--the ruins there are in decent condition. Although the ruins in Reef Bay are in much better condition, Annaberg is far more accessible. Therefore, we don't generally go here on our trips. However, Brad read a historical survey put out by the national park that gave him some major historical insight to the ruins, so we paid them a visit. Between the fact that it was the off season and that we went at 7 in the morning, we had the place entirely to ourselves.

Ruins of the boiling house.


Behind/below the ruins there is the a room that was used as a detention center, built around the late 1700s/early 1800s. Inside on the walls are drawings of the estate house and a slave ship.

And of course views from the overlook . . .
Mary Point to the south

and Waterlemon Cay and BVI beyond to the north.
