Nov. 13, 2003 – As part of its educational outreach program, the St. Croix Landmarks Society is hosting a Ruins Ramble guided tour of an 18th century sugar plantation and a 20th century aluminum plant on Sunday in Estate Spanish Town.
George Tyson will provide historical interpretation, and participants will learn about plans for revitalization of the historic landmarks.
The tour will begin at 3:30 p.m. and the cost is $12 for the general public, $8 for Landmarks Society members and $6 for students. Those wishing to join in are asked to meet at the entrance to Renaissance Park, the former Alcoa Aluminum property, at the intersection of Route 663 and Melvin Evans Highway. The tour will involve "moderate" hiking conditions, and participants should wear comfortable walking shoes.
Refreshments will be served at the end of the hike. To learn more, send an e-mail to Landmark or call 772-0598.
