Hamilton Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 7 photos
Behind the post office on Queen Street in downtown Hamilton, Par-la-Ville Park was once the private garden of the island's first postmaster (1819). Mr. Perot enjoyed finding exotic plants from throughout the world and placing them in Par-la-Ville. In 1847, in planted an Indian rubber tree seed that has grown to a huge size. Mark Twain once said that he was disappointed that the tree didn't bear a crop of hot water bottles and rubber overshoes.
After Bob and I finished our visits to the Perot Post Office and Historical Society, we walked through this garden on our way back to the hotel.
