Rose hall, now restored to its original 18th Century grandeur – is a national monument in Jamaica.
Built in 1770, the Rose Hall Great House was the home of the Palmer family from England, who started this gigantic sugar plantation.
In 1820, Sir John Palmer married a stunning brunette named Annee. Annee was a petite woman who only stood about 4ft. tall, who moved to the beautiful island of Jamaica and became the mistress of Rose Hall.
Once settled in, Annee did away with her husband (John), and subsequently with two other unsuspecting husbands; along with a number of her slave lovers as well. But her black magic didn’t protect her from meeting her own death in 1831, when she was murdered by her slaves, who then set the Great House on fire.
Legend says that Annee, called the White Witch by her slaves, still haunts Rose Hall. There are those even today who claim to have seen her passing through the upstairs rooms of the Great House.
