Montego Bay -
Montego Bay is now a crowded, modernized tourist resort stretching 20 mi along the coast. It is a commercial centre and port, with a large export trade in fruit and other produce. It has an international airport and is noted for its white sand beaches, especially Doctor's Cave on the north shore. Buildings include the cruciform St. James Church (1775); the Town Hall (1804-08); and the Cage (dating from the early 1800s), a former runaway slave detention point and now a dispensary. Seven miles to the east is the infamous Rose Hall Great House, said to be haunted by a former mistress, the "White Witch," who tortured and murdered slaves and lovers.
