Frederiksted

Frederiksted (frĕˈdrĭkstĕd), town, historically the chief port and commercial center of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands; it has been replaced by Christiansted. Sugar provided the principal export until the industry was terminated. Since that time, the town has attempted to convert to tourism, with some success.
