The Devon 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.

This 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.
