Although established after 1780, the cotton-cultivating Hermitage Plantation possessed numerous plantation buildings by 1800. The structures of Hermitage Plantation Historic District are clustered along the north side of Borck Creek, one of Coral Bay's several inlets. By the mid-19th century, the plantation had been converted into a cattle farm, which is what it remained into the 20th century.

Hermitage Plantation Historic District is accessible from the Brown Bay Trail and the East End Rd. west of the plantation site, on the island of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. A road from the Coral Bay settlement leading to the East End Village passes below the plantation site.
