Old Road Bay
It was here at Old Road Bay that Sir Thomas Warner, along with his family and 14 others began the first permanent European settlements in the Leeward Islands. The settlers were at first o good terms with the island's Carib inhabitants, though such friendship lasted only a very few years. Rather than cultivating sugar, it was tobacco that had drawn Warner to the island, and it was the island's tobacco crop that first supported the settlement. The Warner family estate served as the capital of St.Kitts until 1727, when it was moved to Basseterre. Outside of Old Road bay are found a number of interesting Carib Petroglyphs.
