The Haunted Affair at Rose Hall Great House

Ghost Stories abound in Jamaica from duppies to rolling calf which would cause one to shiver up the spine. The story of the “White Witch of Rose Hall” tops them all. This dates back to the 18th century when sugar dominated and the British owned huge tracks of land along with numerous slaves. It was an era of opulence, extravagance, elegance and cruelty.

Annie Palmer was known to have killed her three husbands but was outdone by her African lover “Takoo”. The Rose Hall Great House stands as a museum today, displaying era furnishings and the grave of Annie Palmer is a must visit.
