Town of Dame Marie and Cocoa

Dame Marie saw its golden period between the late 1800's and early 1900's due to German and French investors who capitalized on the cocoa production of the town. Much of the charming architecture for which the town is recognized was built during this time of prosperity. But this was sustained only until a destructive hurricane which tore the town apart in 1954.
