Beautifully told story of the history of the first French settlement on St Croix Island in 1604. Absolutely gorgeous bronze sculptures! Worth stopping even tho the Ranger Station was closed for the day by the time we arrived!

It is really nice to be able to stop at any time of the year at St. Croix Island and show friends the excellent interpretive signs and displays, and especially, the remarkable sculptures.
