Estate Little Princess is a historic plantation site located northwest of Christiansted in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. It was built in 1749 by governor Frederik Moth and rests on 25 acres of land (from the original 200 acres).[1] As of 2011 the estate is under ownership of The Nature Conservancy and serves as headquarters for the Eastern Caribbean/Virgin Islands programs. The property has been turned into a nature preserve and historical tours are given as well. The site was listed as a National Historic Place on June 9, 1980.

There are many buildings on the property, including a building that served as a Danish hospital and the great house, which was built in the 1800s.[2] Both have been partially restored. Estate Little Princess was primarily a sugar and rum factory hundreds of years ago. There are many ruins (such as a windmill and remnants of the factory) located on the grounds of the estate.
