This historic site tells the story of slavery in the Turks and Caicos—an often unspoken part of the island’s past. The plantation remains are quite hard to find, with an entrance hidden between the hospital and St. Monica’s Anglican Church. Once you’re there, take a 30-minute tour, which will tell you the story of the Stubbs, two American brothers who fought for the British in the Revolutionary War and built plantations in the Turks and Caicos. There’s still evidence of the cotton trees they planted, the original limestone walls, and some of the items that were discovered centuries later in 2001. The guides also discuss the role that slaves from the Turks and Caicos played in America and British history. Cheshire Hall Plantation is an important and worthy stop on any Turks trip.
