Nice Government building on a American Island . It is front and center of the Main Street business district. Makes a pleasant addition to the amenities of the island.

We walked up to the house via the "99 Steps" on our way to Blackbeard's Castle. It is a nice colonial building with sentry boxes outside.

It's a hike up the hills and steps but worth it to see some history of Charlotte Amalie. I was able to get inside, for a brief moment, to take some pictures and look around. It seems they don't like visitors in the first floor.

Impressive building with pretty gardens/fountain opposite (from where there are some good views over the port). Nice place to take some photos but you cannot actually go in.
