The Rose Hall Great House, which is a former plantation complete with an elegant manor, is another great excursion for visitors of all ages. For years, Jamaican plantations were run by slaves and while now freed, many people believe their spirits still roam the grounds, including the Rose Hall Great House. However, Rose Hall has a particularly distinctive legend which says the ghost of the former mistress of this house, Annie Palmer, is also said to roam the grounds. Because she was married three times and all her husbands died mysteriously, the islanders called her the “White Witch”. Novels, plays, films and tv series continue to be created about her gruesome legacy. The great house is adjacent to the Rose Hall hotel properties and three of the top golf courses in Jamaica. A tour of the great house is a quick excursion for those seeking to learn a bit about the history of the island. Tour the house and learn the history then grab a drink in the dungeon bar. For the truly brave the night tour and interactive haunted tours offer an added thrill.
