Good Hope Great House and Plantation is located around 8 Miles out of Falmouth Trelawny. This Great house was built in 1755 by Col. Thomas Williams for his wife Elizabeth. The house remains the same with its unique construction as it was when it was built. It sits on a slope which gives an amazing view of the surrounding Queen of Spain Valley right back to the Cockpit Mountains.

Elizabeth unfortunately didn’t lived long as was buried under the ground with a simple stone marker. The house was then sold and the new owner increase the size of the plantation and slaves to over 9000 acres.He treated his slaves well though therefore Good Hope had its own church, a 300-bed hospital, and a Free School that taught those who showed promise how to read and write. Hence the reason the plantation prospered even after the abolition of slavery.
While the plantation change hands several times over the years and different stages of improvements the owners of maintain its original Georgian Style therefore it has its original looks.

Now a working citrus farm with ugli (derived its name from its dimply skin, a result of the hybridization of orange, tangerine and grapefruit), and ortaniques (orange and tangerine) that are exported. There is also a lily pond, swimming pool, tennis court, stables, pottery barn and a beach. The Martha Brae River, the largest in Trelawny, winds its way lazily through the property.
