17 Old Sugarcane Mill in Pembroke, Saint Vincent

Similar to other Caribbean islands, many of the European settlers on Saint Vincent operated plantations. The primary crop was sugarcane. Also grown were coffee, tobacco, cocoa and cotton. Slaves were imported to work the fields until emancipation occurred in 1838. About 70% of today’s population is from African descent. You can still see remnants of plantations around the island. This decaying sugarcane mill is near Pembroke.
