At that time, the house belonged to the first British Provost General of Jamaica. Since then it has served as a coffee plantation as well as a cattle-breeding property. Not only is the house a beautiful sight, you can also visit the property for superb bird watching experiences, where at least 100 species have been spotted.

In the town center is the Mandeville Square, which resembles an English style courtyard. On one side of the square is the courthouse, which was built by the slaves in 1817. There is also a market in the square that is great to visit if you are looking to buy gifts or fresh produce. The Gothic-style St. Mark's Anglican Church, established in 1820, is in the square as well and still serves as the main church in the parish of Manchester.

The Huntington Summit mansion is about three kilometers from the center of the town. It is an octagonal home and is absolutely extravagant, especially compared to most of the other homes you will see in the area. It is owned by the millionaire, Cecil Charlton who was the mayor of the town during the 1970's and 1980's.
