HistoryEdit

The Sion Hill Estate, a former sugarcane plantation, was the economic center of the area. The stone Danish colonial era plantation house, windmill base, and sugar processing factory buildings are now in ruins.

The windmill was used to power a sugar mill for crushing the sugar cane harvested on the plantation.
