Tabery

Dominica


Geschichte

A former sugar and lime estate on the east coast near to La Plaine owned from the early 19th century by the Bertrand family and in the 20th century by the Winston and Potter families. It covered an area of 1,200 acres that extended up the Tabery River valley and along the seashore at Bout Sable beach. It gets its name from the Carib word for a house, Taboui. In the years just before emancipation Tabery was worked by 160 slaves and produced 87,000 lbs of sugar and 3,000 gallons of rum. The estate gradually went into decline and the ruins of the old sugar factory lie in bush near to the present main road.
