“"weigh" too much fun.”
Review of Scale House

Scale House
Reviewed 15 August 2017

We were greeted by one of the many chickens just running loose around the island, he only had one feather on his tail. He welcomed us to this small open air room with this giant scale. It weighed a lot of things in years past, and now its just another thing to look at when you're at the fort!

This was a quick stop on our historical walking tour of Christiansted. It has a timeline for Alexander Hamilton and a reprint of the now infamous letter he wrote after the devastating hurricane on St. Croix. It is fascinating to read. Definitely worth the stop. It is located right on the boardwalk across from the Customs House.

You would walk by this National Treasure and not know what it was until you look inside. History of the shipping trade in the 18-19th Centuries as well as the family tree of the James Hamilton Company.

We found this building to be interesting. Free to go inside and plenty to read. There is also an information desk and gift shop inside.
