Pedro St. James National Historic Site, Grand Cayman
Categories: History Museums, Landmarks, Museums, Tourist Spots
Visit the oldest building in the Cayman Islands, Pedro St. James National Historic Site. Built in 1780, the house belonged to plantation owner William Eden, and underwent restoration in 1996 after decades of abandonment. The old manor served as the birthplace of democracy in the Caymans, where notable island citizens met and decided to vote for their representatives. Step back in time as you roam the interior, carefully restored with period furniture, and imagine what life was like for the wealthy Englishman that built the mansion in the 18th century.

Beautiful Bluff... great place to take pictures
On a Tuesday, during my vacation I decided to rent a car and drive around the island of Grand Cayman to explore it. In the tour map I recieved Pedro St. James was one of our many stop. It's one of the largest mansion located in the island. The tour was given by one of the living family members of the original owners. He was very knowledge and taught us a lot of things which I have never thought of before such as religion and slavery during the older times when Grand Cayman was being establish. This tour was my favorite part of the trip!
An attempt to preserve some of the island's history. Informative tour, great restaurant and beautiful ocean view, one of the best on island. Also a nice place for weddings.. Large enough to accommodate guests and that great view will be in your pictures.
