Government House serves as the offices for the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands and his staff, but is also a wonderful place to visit.
Located atop Government Hill in Charlotte Amalie, the large white building was originally built by the Danes between 1865 and 1867. Inside, visitors will find mahogany staircases, plaques for each of the territory’s governors throughout history, and even works of art by Camille Pissarro. Outside, visitors can enjoy a great view of Charlotte Amalie’s colorful architecture and waterfront. Government House is a short walk from downtown landmarks such as the 99 Steps, Hotel 1829, Roosevelt Park, and Fort Christian.
