The Grange Estate is located in an area of rolling hills approximately 1.5 miles inland from the town of Christiansted. The 26 acre estate includes a tree lined driveway leading up to the lovingly restored greathouse which includes a fully-furnished sitting room, a meeting room, the greatroom (or ballroom), two bathrooms and a full kitchen. The property is also home to many of the original out buildings, including three local village homes that will be available for rent in next year or so. The well-maintained grounds of the estate are full of local flora and fauna, and cooled by the Caribbean tradewinds. As you stroll the grounds you'll find historic masonry, marble monuments, and other glimpses into the history of The Grange Estate.

History of The Grange Estate

Originally called Estate Grange, it was one of the earliest sugar plantations established on St. Croix, and most of the original acreage and many of the structures associated with the historic sugar plantation remain today. The greathouse was built in 1753 by Alexander Hamilton’s aunt and uncle, James and Ann Lytton, who owned the property from 1738-1764. Alexander Hamilton’s mother, Rachel Faucett Levien, was married at Estate Grange in 1745 and she is buried on the premises. A gravestone was erected in the 1930’s to commemorate her death.

On the north side of the structure, stands the original plantation bell which was cast in 1761 in Amsterdam. The property also houses a monument in memory of Danish gendarmes who died here during an outbreak of yellow fever in 1886 when the Estate Grange was used as a convalescent house for those stricken at the Christiansted barracks.

The Grange Estate was also once owned by Kings of Denmark and Count McCathy. The greatroom was known as an 'entertainment room' for grand balls. Today, the property makes the perfect venue for a wedding or special event.
