Greenwood Great House
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).
On display is the original library of the Barrett family, with rare books dating from 1697, along with oil paintings of the family, Wedgwood china, rare musical instruments, and a collection of antique furniture.

AHHH... Ras Natango Gallery and Garden
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.
