The Catherineberg-Jockumsdahl-Herman Farm is linked with many of the families associated with the early settlement of St. Thomas and St. Croix. The de Nully, Beverhout and Heyliger clans were all significant in the early development of the Virgin Islands. A thriving sugar plantation from the 18th through much of the 19th centuries, the farm eventually converted to grazing cattle. Ruins and buildings that remain from the plantation-era include 18th-century factory buildings, the windmill tower and horse mill.

The Catherineberg-Jockumsdahl-Herman Farm, adminstered by the Virgin Islands National Park, is located approximately 500 feet north of Centerline Rd., east of Cruz Bay on St. John Island, U.S. Virgin Islands. The Cruz Bay Visitor Center is open all year 8:00am to 4:30pm; closed Christmas Day. The park areas are open 24 hours a day year round. Visit the park's website or call the park headquarters at 340-775-6238.
