During your Montego Bay
tour, you will have the chance
to take a guided tour of Rose Hall. Built in 1770, the Rose Hall
Great House was the home of the Palmer
family from England, who started the
enormous sugar plantation.
In 1820, John Palmer married
a gorgeous brunette named Annee. Annee was a
petite woman about 4ft. tall, who moved to
the beautiful island of Jamaica and became
the mistress of Rose Hall.
Once settled in, Annee did
away with her husband (John), and
subsequently with two other unsuspecting
husbands; along with a number of her slave
lovers as well. But her black magic didn't
protect her from meeting her own death in
1831, when she was murdered by her slaves,
who then set the Great House on fire.
says that Annee, called the White Witch by
her slaves, still haunts Rose Hall. There
are those even today who claim to have seen
her passing through the upstairs rooms of
the Great House.
Rose hall was later restored
to its original 18th Century grandeur - now
a national monument in Jamaica.
