Juana Diaz

In an 1877 decision of the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico allowing Juan Forgas, then owner of Haciendas Luciana and Cristina, to use water from the Jacaguas River for irrigation, it is stated that in 1870 Luciana was owned by Juan Forgas whose legal representative at the time was his nephew José Gallart Forgas also owner of Central Fortuna .  In the same decision, it is stated that Juan Forgas acquired the 280 to 300 cuerdas Hacienda Luciana on July 3, 1854 from José Pou Pecamius who in turn had acquired it from the estate of Juan Antonio Rodriguez in 1848.  The 352 acre Hacienda Cristina was adjacent to Luciana.  Forgas became 100% owner of Cristina by acquiring in 1863 the 1/3 interest in Cristina from José Maria Alfonso, in 1865 the 37% interest in Cristina owned by Mariano Villaronga and the 5% owned by Joaquin Pastor Márquez and in 1866 the 25% interest of Cristina Villaronga.
In the 1916 Report by the Commission of Industrial Relation on the island it is reported that at the time, Luciana was owned by the Guanica Central .  Today the remains are abandoned and not in use, the surrounding property is being used by a government agency.
