St. Croix Sugar Mill

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Katie Pinette

This is one of many sugar mills on the Island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. A wooden wind mill once sat on top which powered the machinery inside to squeeze the sugar juices out of the cane. From there, the juices were turned into white or brown sugar, molasses, or rum. Today, the empty stone shells of the buildings sit dotting the islands landscape as a reminder of it's very sweet past.

Location: St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
