#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Bonaire
Historic Site · Landmark
The cramped and inhumane conditions at Slave Huts at Orange Pan continue to serve as a grim but important historical lesson. Built in 1850 and scattered along the coast, these small huts served as bedrooms and a place to store belongings while the Dutch colony's slaves were working on the salt fields, separated from their families. You can easily visit on a self-guided tour, as informational plaques next to the huts provide insight into the life of the slaves in the Caribbean.
