Editor’s Note: This is Part 3 of a four-part series about the St. Croix Hiking Association’s recent trip to the Blue Mountain Wilderness Retreat, a rural area of Jamaica. Part 2 was published on Wednesday, July 24, and Part 1 appeared on Saturday, July 20.

We arrived at the Charles Town Maroon Museum, where we saw tools, maps of settlements, and other historic items on exhibit as our guide talked about the history of Jamaica’s Maroons.
