Drax Hall Plantation House

Drax Hall Plantation

Drax Hall Plantation, St. George is one of the early and large sugar plantation properties in existence from the mid-17th century, which was owned by a wealthy grinding-wheel drax-hallfamily in Barbados. As background, Drax Hall was reportedly built by James and William Drax and like many of the structures of that period, Jacobean architecture was the order of the day, with this building being adorned with gable roofs and casement windows.

 

Unlike many others which have been sold or changed hands in some fashion over the years, this plantation remains under the ownership of the Drax family. It is not longer open to the public, however Drax Hall Plantation can be viewed periodically through the annual Open House Programme which is coordinated by the Barbados National Trust.
