Morgan Lewis Mill

A functional Barbados sugar museum


You have to experience the re-enactment of the Morgan Lewis Mill during the second Sunday in each month between February and May to understand the mix of emotions... as this historical monument comes to action. You see over the last few years during the Sugar crop season this 19th century sugar museum  is functional with its sails all in place... It's a wonderful sight.

At this time a host of Barbadians along with North American and European visitor flock to this historic mill to see the grinding of sugar cane to produce cane juice.  As the largest and one of the only intact sugar mill in the Caribbean... Morgan Lewis Mill is a significant part of Barbados rich heritage.

That’s why the National Trust carefully restored the Mill to its former glory in 1999... making it a definite must see for both locals and visitors to the island.

Where is Morgan Lewis Mill Located?

Morgan Lewis Mill is Located in the rugged... but beautiful north east of Barbados the windmill is a fitting reminder of an era when Barbados used the energy of the wind to power its main industry. Built around 1798 this well preserved Dutch-style mill stands as a compelling argument for the use of renewable energy... in an era of rising oil prices, global warming, rising sea levels and the general destruction of our fragile eco-system.


The mill has been touted, as one of the wonders of Barbados... this historic unique stone mill is the property of the Barbados National Trust a charitable non-profit organization charged with the responsibility of preserving the island’s unique heritage.

You’ll be amazed by this fascinating tourist attraction... and even more fascinated by the appetising cane juice, made from the grinding of the organic sugar cane during the visitor season. After the main season is over the mill restoration and maintenance so if you visit during this time the you'll notice that the sail are taken down.
