This Danish fort built between 1752 and 1760 was the site of the most important event in St. Croix history. 8,000 slaves marched from nearby Estate LaGrange to Fort Fredrik and demanded their freedom. 

Originally built to protect the Virgin Islands from piracy, Fort Frederik was the site of a different sort of historic stampede. In 1848, some 8,000 slaves marched through the streets of Frederiksted to this for to demand their freedom. During your visit, you can learn more about this emancipation rally plus trivia about the "Triangle Trade," a slave ship route between Europe, Africa and St. Croix. Frederik is an international treasure. Furthermore, the place is beautiful and interesting. 

You can tour Fort Frederik weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
