AAA Editor Notes

Christiansted National Historic Site covers three city blocks along the waterfront and town square.

Warehouse; and the Government House, once capitol of the Danish West Indies. The Steeple Building, St. Croix's first Lutheran church, houses a museum with Arawak and Carib Indian relics. A self-guiding tour brochure is available from the National Park Service headquarters; caution is advised on the area's uneven sidewalks and stairs. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
