|The Cruz Bay Town Historic District retains remarkable contextual integrity and possesses a high degree of historical significance. It clearly meets applicable National Register Criteria in areas A, B, C and D. The town of Cruz Bay (AKA Christiansbay) was first surveyed and plotted by Danish Crown Surveyor Julius Philip Benjamin von Rohr in June/July of 1766. Von Rohr's field notes and survey drawings indicate that he laid out the town in an orderly grid pattern of three primary streets running parallel to the shoreline, and two cross-streets running inland from the harbor. This plan, set in place nearly 250 years ago, is the same layout encountered in the town of Cruz Bay to the present day. Therefore, as per National Register guidelines, Cruz Bay possesses " ... a significant concentration, linkage, or continuity of sites, buildings, structures, or objects united historically or aesthetically by plan or physical development. "Not only is Cruz Bay's historical setting wholly intact, it also represents a " ... unified entity ... composed of a wide variety of resources ... " all of which "convey a visual sense of the overall historic environment."
