History, Horticulture and Hospitality in St. Croix
It's not often a visit to a destination hotel includes a history tour spanning several centuries. However, history permeates the grounds of The Buccaneer resort on St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which was originally opened by Douglas Armstrong in 1947. As the longest-running property in the Caribbean, it is also the only one run by the same family. The Buccaneer was the exclusive home to the Federal Emergency Management Agency — as opposed to tourists — during the early days of recovery from the hurricanes that hit the islands in 2017 — a huge boon to the entire island.
