A Unique View of the Danish West Indian Life of the Early 1900s! Nestled in a valley northeast of Frederiksted, the Lawaetz Museum’s 18-century estate house, with its accompanying ruins and rambling garden, has a charming old-island quality. Converted from a sugar plantation into a dairy ranch in the late 1890’s by a Danish farmer and occupied by his descendants for the last 100 years, it houses characteristic and unusual antique furnishings and heirlooms, providing a unique view of Danish West Indian life in the early 1900’s.
