St. John and Virgin Islands History


St. John History
St. John Virgin Islands has a fascinating history and culture starting from its fiery volcanic birth.

St. John was once the site of a thriving Taino culture, a lucrative plantation era based on sugar and slavery followed by the subsistence economy of hard working and industrious small farmers, artisans and fishermen.

Today, St. John, USVI is the home of the Virgin Islands National Park and is one of the most "in" tourist destinations of those in the know.
