When I was in Montego Bay, Jamaica, recently I was able to take a tour of the Rose Hall Great House a.k.a. The Annie Palmer House. If you are into history, this is a tour that can’t be missed! If you are a fan of supernatural or paranormal happenings, this tour is perfect for you! Rose Hall is rich with history stretching back 2,000+ years. Only within the last 4 years have the owners of Rose Hall Great House decided to make a night tour which adds to the ambiance of this magnificent property. Without giving away too much of the story I will give you a brief history:
Rose Hall Great House was one of the biggest slave plantations on Jamaica. One of the mistresses’ of the house, Annie Palmer, or “The White Witch”, became known as one of the harshest slave owners and was less than nice to all of her husbands. Legend has it that she haunts the Rose Hall property and she is buried on-property, and you do get to see her gravesite.
While walking through the house and the sprawling property your tour guide gives you plenty of history and details of the time in which Annie Palmer ruled the plantation. I am not one to be easily scared, but the overall creepiness of the house and the property starts to give an eerie feeling that sticks with you for awhile. This is a tour that I will definitely recommend to my clients staying in the Montego Bay, Jamaica, area!
