Category:Great Houses in Jamaica
The Great House (Plantation House) was the seat of authority on an estate. It was the home of planters, or attorneys who acted for the absentee owner. The size and profitability of the property and the wealth of the owner determined the size of the house. These houses were usually two storey buildings with a base of brick, cut stone and mortar. The top floor was usually made of wood. Reference: Jamaica National Heritage Trust, Great Houses
