Spring Sugar Plantation

To the southwest of Marigot, the Spring Sugar Mill takes its name from a spring that was located nearby. Sugar production was started at the factory in 1772 by traders from Guadeloupe.

For a century, the factory produced a significant output of sugar and rum. Remains of the sugar plant can still be seen, including the large round limestone chimney and the animal-driven mill where you can still catch a glimpse of the grindstones used to crush the sugar cane.

Other remains are visible here, too, including the purgery, the furnace, where there were four great boilers, a still oven and a tank.
