Description

Welcome to Devon House Heritage Site, one of Jamaica’s leading national monuments and a symbol of the cultural diversity, which makes this island a unique choice for thousands of visitors. This 127 year old site located in the heart of metropolis Kingston, Jamaica’s capital, offers a striking contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city. The 11-acre property with its lush sprawling lawns provides an ambience that soothes the mind and soul, and offers an enviable shopping experience for both local and overseas visitors. Patrons to Devon House can partake in the fascinating history of the site, which was built by Jamaica’s first black millionaire George Stiebel.

This house is a fine example of nineteenth (19th) century domestic architecture in Jamaica. It is a beautifully restored mansion and major source of attraction and place of relaxation.
The magnetic appeal of Devon House is not just in the beautifully restored rooms, with their antique furniture and lovely decorations, but also in the shops selling Jamaican craft items, and the restaurants serving authentic Jamaican food. It is a major source of pride for many Jamaicans.
