Take a step back into the nation's past during a visit to Devon House, a 19th century mansion and celebrated landmark. Built in 1891, the Georgian-style mansion sits on a sprawling 4.4 ha (11 acre) estate of landscaped gardens, with much of the property now housing shops, restaurants, and cafes. Take a tour of the main house to learn about its original owner, George Stiebel, a self-made man who became the country's first black millionaire. Furnished with antiques from across the region, the home's interiors showcase Victorian tastes, with English chandeliers and oil paintings..

  • This building is one of Jamaica’s most iconic, prominent and recognized historic landmarks. The Georgian style house, is possibly the best maintained in its class. The property offers a beautiful combination of flora, fauna and building structures. In 1990, Devon House was declared a national monument by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. Their, "I Scream" still has its trademark remarkable flavor, texture and varieties. Dining is still available and the have added a spa to the mix. A definite "bucket list" worthy site.
  • The best ice cream ever! I always get the cherry flavor. This time my daughter didn't eat all her vanilla (too much) so I got to taste both. They never disappointed me. It was delicious. The single scoop is all you need. It was alot. My husband got the chocolate milkshake and thought it was delicious. The cost of the milkshake is for a double scoop ice cream.
