Castle Nugent National Historic Site Establishment Act
The Castle Nugent National Historic Site Establishment Act (H.R. 3726), introduced by Representative Donna Christensen, would preserve the Castle Nugent Historic Site, one of the remaining pristine landscapes of St. Croix. The bill would preserve 2,900 acres of Caribbean dry forest, extensive coral reef, and substantial black mangrove. It would also preserve the archaeological remains of indigenous Taino inhabitants and the Danish colonial era. It is important to save this piece of St. Croix from the kind of development that would limit use by residents.
