An Historical Walking Map of Cruz Bay will take you on an historical journey around town at your own pace.  Follow the numbers on artist Lisa Etre’s rendering as you experience the historical nature of the town of Cruz Bay. This full color map has explanations of architecture, notes about our famous and noteworthy local heroes from the ages, pictures of Cruz Bay from the past, and a timeline of the establishment of the town. 

This map was made possible from a grant from the Edward L. Towle Fund for Sustainable Islands and the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands. 

Much of the information in this map can be found in the book Cruz Bay from Conquest to Exploitation: A Forgotten History, written by David W. Knight, Sr.

In researching historical walking maps around the town of Cruz Bay, we found one from the1980’s with just three properties listed. Enjoy this wonderful pamphlet also produced by the St. John Historical Society.
