Good Hope began in 1774 as a sugar estate and grew into a village to support its workers after emancipation. In the 18th century, the Good Hope Estate belonged to John Tharpe, then the largest land and slave owner in Jamaica. Today, its former slave hospital has been turned into an aviary and the lands now host activities for adventure-seeking tourists mostly coming from nearby all-inclusive resorts. That said, there are still signs of its past dotted about and the estate still offers amazing views of the surrounding area.
