To the manor, you shall return when you return to this handsome home on William Street. Preserved for the future by rounds of loving restorations, this circa 1866 mansion first housed the youngest son of wealthy Bahamian settlers and in more recent history, a seven-bedroom guesthouse.

The wide, entry hallway remains a formal gallery with broad wall space (rare in Old Town) for displaying art.
