Morgan Lewis is one of the only two intact and restored sugar mills in the Caribbean. The other is at Betty’s Hope Estate on one of our sister islands, Antigua.
Maintained by the Barbados National Trust, the mill includes an exhibit of the equipment used to produce sugar at the time when the industry was run by wind power generated from mills such as this one.
Although the old plantation house has seen better days it is still worth a visit!
The rubble walls are comprised of boulders held together with a mixture of egg-white and coral dust (there was no cement when this plantation house was built!).
