The Annaberg Plantation is one of several St. John's plantations owned in the 1720s and 1730s by Frederick Moth, the first Danish Governor of St.Croix and, later, the Governor General of the Danish West Indies. By the early 19th century, Annaberg, one of St. John's biggest sugar producers, also produced molasses and rum for export. The historic district's extensive ruins include a windmill tower, factory, slave quarters and other structures associated with sugar production.

The Annaberg Historic District, administered by Virgin Islands National Park, is located east of Mary Point accessible by the North Shore and Leinster Bay rds. on St. John's north shore, U.S. Virgin Islands. The Cruz Bay Visitor Center is open 8:00am to 4:30pm daily; closed Christmas Day. Regular ranger-led tours of the plantation are available; there is a fee for adults. Call 340-776-6201 ext. 238 or visit the park's website for further information. Annaberg Historic District has also been documented by the Historic American Buildings Survey.
