Argyle Sugar Mill Ruins

As part of the ongoing Cultural Heritage Action Plan being implemented by the St. Vincent and the Grenadines National Trust at the site of the Argyle International Airport, a team from the University of Hartford will arrive in St. Vincent on Sunday March 14th 2010 to commence a project at the Argyle Sugar mill Ruins. The first phase of this project would include the mapping of all remaining ruins of the Argyle mill and the creation of a three dimensional representation of the mill.

This project takes the form of an elective Industrial Archaeology course offered by the Department of Engineering at the University of Hartford.  Thus, the team will comprise of engineering students from the university.  In addition, six students from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Technical College have been selected to work along with the Hartford team.

The Community Foundation for SVG a nonprofit organisation established by members of the Vincentian Diaspora in the United States was instrumental in making this project a reality, as well as the International Airport Development Company, the IADC.

Please contact the National Trust Secretariat at 451-2921 or 533-0752 or email us at or should you require further details.
