Lonely Planet review for Fort Christian
Red-brick Fort Christian is just east of Emancipation Garden and is the oldest colonial building in the Virgin Islands, dating back to 1666. Over the years, the fort has functioned as a bastion, jail, governor's residence and a Lutheran church. The museum inside has interesting historical exhibits.
