This quiet site is a window into the historical plantation days of the Caicos Islands. Located on a hilltop near the downtown area, Cheshire Hall is the best preserved set of plantation-era ruins on Providenciales. Encouraged by the success of his brother Wade Stubb’s plantation Wade’s Green on North Caicos, Thomas Stubb set up Cheshire Hall in the late 1700s to raise cotton. Eventually Thomas Stubbs gave up on Cheshire Hall and sold it to his brother Wade. Up to the early 1800s, Cheshire Hall was the most important site on Providenciales and at its height was comprised of about five thousand acres and employed hundreds of slaves. After a few decades of mild success, the boll weevil insect, soil degradation and hurricane damage put an end to the cotton industry in the Turks and Caicos.
Leeward Highway is the main motorway on Providenciales, and runs from the Downtown and airport area to the east end of the island. Many of the island’s larger stores and businesses are located along this highway.

Open week days, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. $10 dollar entrance fee per person.
