Moravian Mission House, King Street vicinity, Christiansted, St. Croix, VI

 
 
description

Summary

Significance: This large masonry and wood frame structure housed at one time at least two full families, one to each of the upper floors. On each floor are central living rooms flanked by bedrooms and other secondary rooms. The Mission House in its present shape is an early nineteenth-century structure. It incorporated masonry walls and possible some structural wood work of an eighteenth-century building. It is a good and typical example of the Moravian architecture of the Danish Virgin Islands and clearly shows its North European derivation. The building has a great deal of early hardware, and wood details.
Survey number: HABS VI-29
