The greatest of Jamaican great houses, the Rose Hall Great House has a story with all the elements of an engaging novel.

      Built during an era of elegance and brutality, Greenwood has retained the atmosphere of the 19th century and continues to capture the imagination of its visitors.

In fact, Greenwood has the largest and rarest collection of musical instruments and books on the island.
