Nevisian Heritage Village

The Nevisian Heritage Village administered by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, largely depicts the evolution of Nevisian social history through housing.

The houses, dating from the Carib Indian era, are replicas and are furnished with antiques and relics of their relevant periods. The display includes the blacksmith's shop, rum shop, and the shoe-maker's shop, along with the dwelling houses. To complete this traditional village setting are "backyard" gardens, beautiful flower gardens and various species of indigenous plants and shrubs some adorning the typical "estate yard" ruins. And, there's even an area for animal rearing.
