Charlotteville is a village situated on the northeastern tip of Tobago (the smallest of the two islands) on Man-o-war Bay.
Tobago, like the other islands of the Caribbean, is steeped in a history of European conquest and enslavement. This small island had changed hands as many as 22 times by the European colonizers, which is more often than any other West Indian island.
The history of the village is closely linked to sugar farming, and Charlotteville's deep water harbour was also of importance for the town's development. In more recent times fishing has been important for the economy.
