Day 254 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Discover the Great House at Annandale Estate

Annandale Estate

Take a tour of the 200-year-old Great House located on more than 600 acres of land at the Annandale Estate. The house features interior furnishings that belonged to its original owner, Dr. Alexander Johnston, a Scottish physician and relative of the Marquess of Annandale. The Jamaican property was named after the ancestral home of the Johnston family in Scotland. The doctor’s son Lieutenant-Colonel James Johnston was second in command of the regiment in St, Ann during the 1831 Slave Rebellion. The estate included more than 2,300 acres in 1919. In the 1950s, most of the estate was sold to the Reynolds Bauxite Company. It is a good place to learn some Jamaican history.
