Attraction details
Owner description: 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 Heritage Village 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. This includes the blacksmith’s shop, rum shop, and the shoe-maker’s shop, along with the dwelling houses and gardens.

“The Nevisian Heritage Village”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We have been to this open air museum in the afternoon and were disappointed to realize that it was about to close. However, we were invited to come again in the morning preferably, and we were happy that we did.The tour was led by Pat who made a lively presentation of the evolution of housing on the island since the time of the first Carib inhabitants until today. Her highly documented exposé and the on site display of the various types of local houses was another way to better appreciate the caribbean spirit.
We not only enjoyed the presentation but we also appreciated Pat's precisions about Nevis history as well as trying the various fuit trees in this park. It is definitely worth a visit!

“Check before going”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

My wife and I recently tried to visit on a Wednesday afternoon, during the slow season. We saw on the internet that it closed at 4:00, & we saw on a sign at the location that it closed at 3:30. We got there at 15 minutes to 3, but the gate was closed. We and two other cars had to back out the entrance and leave. If you go there during the slow season, you should be probably call first or otherwise confirm if the Village will be open.
