We ride past St. Thomas’ Lowland church, the oldest active Anglican Church in the Caribbean, built in 1643 to serve the town of Jamestown, the island’s original capital that disappeared as a result of a tsunami. The church cemetery has many tombstones bearing names of Nevis’ early settlers dating back to 1649 including John Cottle – the first governor of Nevis and founder of Cottle’s Church – the only church where enslaved people and plantation owners could worship together. There is also a vault that holds the remains of John Huggins (1763-1821), the developer of Bath Hotel- the first hotel designed for tourists (including a golf course) in the new world.
