Pedro St. James National Historic Site, Grand Cayman

4.5
#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Cayman Islands
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. Discover how to plan a Bodden Town trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • I was so surprised and impressed with the audio/visual presentation before the tour. This is a very unique historical gem. I'm glad my family and I made the trip.. learned a lot about the history of the island and the people living here. The staff members are extremely welcoming and accommodating.
  • Fabulous tour! History you'll never learn unless you take this tour! Stacey, who was born there, was an amazing tour guide. The rum tasting was...tasty!!! An affordable "must do"!
  • Excellent visit as always. Everyone that lives or visits should come and check out an excellent piece of history.
  • Great historical base. Remarkable audiovisual presentation. Staff knowledgeable and very willing to go the extra mile to accommodate handicapped persons.
  • Incredible location with a view that can't be compared to anything else on island. Great Happy Hour and worth drive out of 7 Mile and Caymana Bay. Nice historical site as well.
