The most imposing of the former plantation houses around Montego Bay is Rose Hall Great House, pictured, the restored home of a legendary 18th-century chatelaine Annie Palmer (a.k.a. the White Witch) who strangled and stabbed three husbands. Today, the place is filled with lovely period furniture, and, needless to say, is said to be haunted. Greenwood Great House and Antique Museum was built by cousins of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who came to Jamaica in 1655. Its 15 rooms still display original books, furnishings, and a whimsical collection of antique musical instruments. Bellefield Great House is part of a 3,000-acre working estate that has been owned by the same family for 271 years. The walls are hung with family portraits and artwork by Rudyard Kipling's daughter among others, and the old sugar mill is now a rum cellar where you can learn about the spirit's history in Jamaica and taste samples.
