The Vieques Conservation & Historical Trust is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 and supported by members of our community and interested donors from around the world. It operates thanks to the efforts of dedicated volunteers and is strictly non-political in nature. The organization is concerned with the protection of the unique archeological, physical and ecological environment existing on Vieques.
Our small museum at the VCHT includes artifacts from the pre-ceramic period (3,000 B.C.E). The oldest inhabitants of the Antilles had a very rudimentary culture and are called Archaeic Indians. They were semi/nomadic and lived by collecting mollusks and crustaceans by fishing, hunting, gathering fruits and wild roots.
