Greenwood Great House is 4 mi. (6 km) e. on Rte. A1, then 2 mi. (3 km) on a steep road to 435 Belgrade Ave. The house was built in 1790 by Richard Barrett, a relative of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Having amassed considerable wealth from their sugar plantations, the Barretts presided over an estate that extended about 12 miles (19 km) along the coast from Little River to Falmouth. Antiques include period furniture, family portraits, rare musical instruments and Wedgwood china made exclusively for the Barrett family.
Visitors can see the curvature of the Earth from a 70-foot-long veranda overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
