The northwest corner of St. Croix is characterized by large land holdings and limited development. The Prospect Hill Preserve constitutes the bulk of a double valley system that is topographically isolated from surrounding properties.
Sharing the double valley are the following properties.
Butler Bay Partners - A VI limited partnership, owns approximately 60 acres directly to west of PHP. This property is available for purchase.
Butler Bay Nature Preserve - Under the auspices of the St. Croix Landmarks Society who owns or has been pledged approximately 100 acres to be used as wildlife preserve. The Butler Bay Nature Preserve has been an important private effort spearheaded by the St. Croix Landmarks Society to preserve not only highly specialized subtropical ecosystems in the Butler Bay area but the historical and cultural features as well.
Butler Bay Great House - The area was once a thriving Danish sugar plantation and there are many artifacts and ruins from the plantation still being found. The plantation greathouse (circa 1720) survives to this day in a beautifully restored state. It has been included in the national register of historic homes and forms the centerpiece of the Butler Bay area. Plot 24 is a 25 acre parcel owned by an investor group from Boston.
Immediately outside of the Butler Bay valley system are two important properties that help define the Butler Bay area. To the south, Mill Point, is a spectacular villa built around the plantation's sugar mill. Estate Northside to the north is a separate plantation with a home built again around the sugar mill.
