Robert Louis Stevenson lived here in St. Helena for a couple of months after his wedding. He was ill and needed to recover. He stayed here and perhaps that's why they still honor him today.
His wife was divorced - which was a difficult thing to do in those days. She usually said she was widowed to avoid the conflict.
Stevenson was best known for his stories of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Treasure Island--at least in my mind.
So, we stopped to visit his museum and even is tree.
