Herman Farm Workshop

Estate Herman Farm St. John USVI
Storage Shed and Workshop Used by Cory Bishop at Estate Catherineberg in the 1940s

In the 1940s, an American, Cory Bishop, operated a working truck farm on Estate Cathrineberg, known then as Herman Farm similar to the American truck farms of that day. He produced vegetables, fruits and livestock. All that’s left of his operation is the horsemill, across the road from the windmill that had been converted to a cistern, which used to serve as a fresh water pond containing attractive aquatic plants, until it was allowed to crumble and decay and an old workshop and storage shed which can be found (with perseverance) in the bush off the east end of the Catherineberg Road.
