Majagual
Juana Diaz

 
Even though the Barrio where it is located is called Emajagual, its current owner Elias Fernandez, told us the Hacienda was and is called El Majagual.  It was originally owned by unknown Spanish immigrants and acquired by Clotilde Santiago, also owner Hacienda Carmen , in the latter part of the 19th Century. 
 
During the first part of the 1900s it was owned by the Fas family of Cabo Rojo during which ownership Elias began working at the farm.  Sugarcane has not been harvested here since the days of Clotilde Santiago's ownership.
 
The farm is being used to grow corn and other produce, Elias still uses oxen driven plowing methods and goes to the fields on horseback.
