Lodge Great House
Description
Lodge Great House (in the Village of Lodge) Samuel Crooke, a planter-politician who served as a member of the Island’s Council, built this eighteenth century Great House. Samuel was the great-grandson of a Major Henry Crooke who was a resident of the island as early as 1648. Crooke left the plantation to his son Samuel Crooke ‘the little’, who also served on the Council before the end of the eighteenth century. The Crooke connection is still preserved in the cane field nearest to the Great House being called ‘Crooke’s Garden’. The property was recently purchased by a group of English investors for restoration and conversion to a Heritage Tourism Attraction.
