The Nevisian Heritage Village at Fothergills Estate, which was once a bustling sugar plantation and cotton ginning station is situated on the eastern side of the island, the village is nestled amid the lush evergreen vegetation on the lower slopes of the commanding Nevis Peak, a dormant volcano that makes a perfect backdrop.

This includes the blacksmith’s shop, rum shop, and the shoe-maker’s shop, along with the dwelling houses and gardens.
