Plantation Pouderoyen or Klien Pouderoijen (Dutch name) was established by Jan Christian Swaen and his family circa 1750.The planation originally harvested coffee but as time progressed, produced sugar and corn along with other crops. The remnants of a koker, is the only remaining structure from the plantation. Most likely built of slave labour, the structure was constructed to facilitate drainage from the estate.
