History Discovery Grove has hosted guests from around the world that have experienced the unique blend of St. Croix's West Indian culture and breath-taking beauty. Located on the grounds of Estate Canaan, a former sugar cane plantation from the 18th century, remnants from the past blend with new island charm on this 12 acre oasis featuring nature trails, mango orchards and tropical rainforest.

On St. Croix, history never repeats itself. Seven different flags have flown since Columbus' 1493 landing in Salt River. Those of us who studied American history back in the states know Columbus backwards and forwards, and yet, few of us ever learned that he was perhaps the first European tourist to visit our "American Paradise"….. or that the first settlers of St. Croix were the Igneri, Taino, and Carib Indians, predating Columbus' visit by centuries.
