House Mansion was also transformed to reflect a museum depicting
19th century Jamaican life including furniture and other artefacts.
Today, this investment has quadrupled and patrons to Devon House
now enjoy daily tours of this historic mansion and a diverse
blend of Jamaican products in the thirteen stores that make
up the property’s commercial complex.
historical site stands with prominence not only as a result
of its location but because of its ambience and unmatched offerings
of local products and services. It forms a tangible part of
Jamaica’s history, with its origins entrenched as early
as the 17th century. The Devon House story developed steadily
throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, and today constitutes
a fundamental element of our dynamic record of the past. This
is particularly evident in the late 19th century, with the rise
of the first patriarch of Devon House George Stiebel, whose
story is not only widely romanticized, but is lauded as an inspirational
legend for the youth of Jamaica.
