St John has a long and interesting history. In the Early 1700’s Danish immigrants were attracted to St John’s potential as a sugar cane-producing colony and migrated to the island to start a booming sugar cane industry. The ruins of the Annaberg Sugar Plantation and other smaller plantations can still be visited today. The extensive sugar cane farming, however, did little to affect the natural beauty of St. John and since the farming stopped the second generation forests have taken over where the plantations once were. In 1956, Laurence Rockefeller was so moved by the island that he bought and donated broad expanses of land to the National Park Service to keep St. John "a thing of joy forever."
