In the eighteenth century there was a very popular spa located here. People flocked to this tiny island to soak in the hot mineral spring in the hopes of curing their ills.
The first U.S. Secretary of State, Alexander Hamilton, was born here in 1755.
An area in the center of Main Street honors those that served in both World Wars.
There are some elegant old estates a short distance from Charlestown.
Pinney's Beach begins at Charlestown and goes on for six miles north up the Caribbean coast.
