George Washington House
George Washington House is located near Barbados’ famous Garrison Savannah and is part of the UNESCO site Bridgetown and Its Historic Garrison. In 1751, a young George Washington, who went on to become the first American President, made his first and only trip outside of the continental United States to Barbados, where he resided at the formerly known Bush Hill House. Subsequent to his visit, the charming plantation house was aptly named.
In January 2007 the house was restored by the Barbados National Trust who succeeded in creating an accurate replica and depiction of what life was like back in the 1700s. Be transported back to that time as you explore the genuine antiques at this historic site.
