Great houses, or plantation houses, were built at a time when sugar cane made Jamaica the wealthiest English colony in the West Indies.[1] Sugar cane was harvested by enslaved peoples.[2]

British contemporary architecture was adapted to the tropics with features such as wide wrap-around verandas, jalousies, and sash windows to accommodate the Caribbean climate.
