St. Thomas, a rich cultural history.

The first inhabitants of St. Thomas were the Cibony Caribs, and the Arawaks. Christopher Columbus discovered the Virgin Islands in 1493, naming them ‘The Virgins’ after the beauty of St. Ursula, and her 1,000 virgins. The islands had a quiet period after the visit of Columbus, although Spanish settlers from Puerto Rico, are said to have carried out regular raids on the islands forcing many of the Indian inhabitants to work while others fled. The European exploration spelled the demise of the indigenous groups living on the islands as they had no immunity to the different diseases brought over with the explorers, nor were they prepared for the harsh labor they were forced into.

Over the next few decades, the Indian population had plummeted on the islands and they no longer exist in what is known today as the USVI. Many countries expressed an interest in St. Thomas during the 1600’s including Holland, France, England, Spain, Denmark, and the Knights of Malta. However, it was the Danes who managed to establish the first settlement on St. Thomas in 1672 with the Danish West India Company in 1733, and sugar plantations began to appear all over the island. The slave trade serving sugar plantations on the islands thrived until a rebellion caused the abolition of slavery in 1848. The lack of slavery led to many plantation owners abandoning their properties, and land and decline in the economy ensued. Very little was heard about the US Virgin Islands until World War II, when the United States negotiated to purchase the islands from Denmark for $25 million in gold. Although the islands were purchased in 1917, citizenship was not granted to Virgin Islanders until 1927. Tourism grew on the island once the US imposed an embargo on Cuba in 1959, and today St. Thomas is a thriving destination for visitors in search of the perfect destination and for those looking for a new home.
