What is left of Dauphin Plantation in Fort Liberte, Haiti

Here is a picture of a building in Fort Liberte that was served to house Sisal from the Dauphin Plantation in Fort Liberte, Haiti.

At the Time, there was a good demand for sisal worldwide and it was very profitable to get into this business.

The plantation of sisal covered what is to be known now as Bay Plantation. The area covered Lake Romeo all the way to the mountains and then northwest to the ocean with the western boundary along the river that flows by Terrier Rouge.

As sudden decrease in the prise of sesal in the world market forced the project to close

By the beginning of World War II, Haiti had a huge plantation of sisal which was estimated at around 13,500 acres
