Jewish Cemetery And Jew's Walk

The earliest tombstone dates back to 1769 in this small cemetery, established by the Jews who came to Nevis to work in the sugar industry.

The engraved tombstones are written in English, Hebrew, and Portuguese, since these were Sephardic Jews, who had come to Nevis from Brazil. They came to the Island to introduce the technology of Sugar production to the island.
