The Ogier-Fombrun Museum will greet you with stories dating from the pre-Colombian Indian era to colonial times of 1794 when Haiti used to be the largest producer of sugar in the Caribbean. The property is an authentic sugar cane plantation whose ruins were totally recovered by the work of Architect Gerard Fombrun during more than 35 years of personal involvement. The authentic stone aqueduct which still exists continues to run water to a gigantic 20 feet wooden wheel which was used to extract the juice from the cane. The "Etuve", which was used to heat up the "melasse", still exists and is reminiscent of a rich past.
