Greenwood Great House located in the parish of Saint James, on Jamaica's North Coast, is a fine example of late eighteenth century Great House construction in Jamaica. Built in 1790 by the the Barretts who came to Jamaica in the 1660s. Some people find the 15-room greathouse interesting than other greathouses because it's undergone less restoration. The Georgian-style building was the residence of Richard Barrett (cousin of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning).

From a barren, rocky hillside to the cultural epicenter that it is today, the AHHH… RAS NATANGO GALLERY AND GARDEN has always had a special, unique atmosphere. In 1988, Ian Williams (Ras Natango) purchased the land that would later hold AHHH... solely for the view. After years of pursuing his art, the land was terraced and a gallery built upon it. In 2009, the gallery and garden were well on their way to becoming a formal attraction. It was at this time that AHHH... RAS NATANGO GALLERY AND GARDEN was registered through the Jamaican tourist board.
The garden also has its very own KING TUT’S FALLS, leading to the KOI POND. You may even hold our turtles. Jamaica has 28 endemic birds, 18 of which are found at AHHH... in addition, we have migratory birds who arrive late September and depart in march. The garden has river stones painted with the birds seen on property with their scientific and local names for easy identification.
All paintings in the gallery are for sale. The medium is acrylic on canvas. Paintings reflect the vibrant colors of the island. One section is of Jamaica’s flora and fauna, birders will enjoy paintings of our endemic birds and plant life that have been presented in the gallery. The other section has paintings of our people, culture, and pastimes.
