The St. John Historical Society has some old photos for you to see at its meeting tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Bethany Moravian Church.
Historical Society president David Knight will share photos and the story of his parent’s visit to the Virgin Islands in 1937.
“The presentation will include never-before-seen images accompanied by excerpts from the journal of Knight’s father, Dr. George H.H. Knight, which recounts the long journey by ship from New York to Puerto Rico, then on to the Virgin Islands with stops at St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John and Tortola,” the historical society says.
If you’re on island, stop by the church tomorrow night. It’s free and open to the public.
The Historical Society will also lead a tour of the Annaberg sugar factory next Saturday at 9 a.m. It’s also free.
