The Saman Tree
The Saman tree at Romney Manor is 350 years old, 24 ft in diameter and covers 1/2 an acre.
This 10-acre estate was once owned by Sam Jefferson II, the great great great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. Romney Manor was also the first estate in St. Kitts to emancipate slaves in 1834. The estate is also the current home of Caribelle Batik, an ancient art form that uses hot wax to dye fabric in a variety of different patterns and colors.
