Spotlight St. Thomas - Haagensen House

This lovingly restored house was built in the early 1800s by Danish entrepreneur Hans Haagensen. It's surrounded by an equally impressive cookhouse, outbuildings, and terraced gardens. A lower-level banquet hall showcases antique prints and photographs. Guided tours begin at the nearby Hotel 1829, then continue here. The tour includes stops at two other restored 19th-century houses, a rum factory, amber museum, and finally the lookout tour at Blackbeard's Castle. Tours are given between 9 am and 3 pm on days a cruise ship is in port. Self-guided tours are also available.
