Devon House & Ice Cream from Kingston

About this activity
One of Kingston's highly visited historical landmarks, The Devon House Mansion is the architectural dream of Jamaicas first black millionaire George Stiebel. Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road, which fittingly became known as the Millionaires Corner. Although the other homes were eventually demolished to make way for modern development ventures, Stiebels legacy lives on within the beautifully maintained Devon House - a national monument declared in 1990 by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. Many would be surprised, however, to learn that the early history of Devon House dates back to the mid seventeenth century when Britain captured Jamaica from Spain. Today, one can still find this piece of Jamaica's history in the heart of Kingston with its welcoming ornate fountains, and palm trees on the front lawn. The guided tours inside the 2 story property allows each guest to peruse the lourved balconies, Venetian crystal chandeliers, silk wall hangings and period reproductions of its time, and at the end of the Mansion tour each guest receives a sweet surprise! In addition to the Mansion tour, The Devon House courtyard has been made renowned as it currently houses some of Jamaica's most acclaimed restaurants and shops:- The Brick Oven Devon House Ice Cream Whats on Cafe Things Jamaica Wassi Art Rum Roast and Royals Norma's on the terrace Grog Shoppe Elaine Elegance Starfish Oils Cooyah Rootz Wear Jamaica Juice Ts and Treasures
