St. Croix Landmarks Society Leads a 'Ruins Ramble'

April 20, 2009 – St. Croix Landmarks Society invites the public to a ramble through the ruins at Estate Diamond and Ruby at 3:30 p.m., Sunday, April 26.

The walk will begin from the Kmart appliance store parking lot (across from the WAPA building) and will include an easy to moderate walk into the bush and an exploration of the sugar plantation ruins. At the end of the walk, participants will have some light refreshments. Please dress appropriately.
