One of Jamaica’s most celebrated historical landmarks The Devon House Mansion is the architectural dream of Jamaica’s first black millionaire George Stiebel. Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road, which fittingly became known as the Millionaires Corner. Daniel Finzi and the Verleys were the other families that resided in the area, however, both homes were eventually demolished to make way for development ventures including the construction of Abbey Court Apartments. Stiebel’s legacy lives on with the beautifully maintained Devon House, which was declared a national monument in 1990 by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust.

If you are traveling through Kingston stop here and take a couple of hours for a guided visit of the house. You will be amazed by the history behind these walls.

Don't leave here without trying the ice cream (Devon Stout is the best it's like Guinness ice cream) and also grab a chicken patty from the Brick Oven bakery.

A national heritage landmark built in a picturesque Jamaican-Georgian style — a mixture of Creole and Georgian styles adapted to the tropical climate. This charming mansion was constructed in 1881 by George Stiebel, one of the first black millionaires in the Caribbean. Onsite are craft shops, restaurants, pastry shops and a bakery.
