The Virgin Islands Legislature, the territory's only law-making body, meets at this lime green waterfront building. The public is welcome to watch committee meetings and legislative sessions, both held on the second floor Chambers. Often raucous, the events are a glimpse into the territory's political machinations. Built originally by the Danish as a police barracks, this structure later served as the public high school. It was also the site of the 1917 transfer of the territory's ownership from Denmark to the United States. There is no admission charge.
