  • The building is a great example of Colonial style houses and has great views and a statue of Colombus in front 
  • Stroll by and get a great pic of Christopher Columbus. Beautiful building on a great walk around the island. 
  • A beautiful building with pink facade near the port. Has a monument on the front and nothing more. It's worth taking a quick stop for photos and then to the beach.

  • Nice place to visit to get some history in the Bahamas. Reasonably well kept and tidy.
  • it's a realy nice place to visit.
  • Nice visit. We visited with a school class. It was a good experience.
  • Generally very well kept, however a lot of the plants on the land look sickly or dying. Parts of the property likely haven't been used in decades. Events there are always with finger foods, some music, and of course mingling of the crowd
  • Good
