Panelists and audience members at Tuesday’s St. John Historical Society meeting agreed that tourism on St. John is at a tipping point, but offered differing opinions about what this means for the future of the island.

The discussion, entitled “St. John Tourism: Where Do We Go From Here?” took place at the historical society’s monthly meeting at the Bethany Moravian Church.
