Why not visit The Tucker House Museum? It is located on Water Street in the Town of St. George. The museum is housed in the former home of a merchant, built in the 18th Century. This offers visitors an insight into what life must have been like in Bermuda of the past.
The home now belongs to the National Trust of Bermuda. It takes its name from the man that served as president of the island’s Governor’s Council from 1775 to 1807. His name was Henry Tucker and he lived in this house with his family. They were an influential local dynasty with connections to such luminaries as the islands second Governor and Queen Anne.
The museum is filled with numerous exhibits representing the life of this prominent family. It boasts classical pieces of furniture, family portraits and the finest silver on display. The kitchen meanwhile is a monument to the exceptional Joseph Hayne Rainey.
He was the free man whom, during the American Civil war fled to Bermuda, to escape the Confederates. But the man would later return to the United States to become the first African American male elected to the US House of Representatives in 1870. Rainey’s incredible life is commemorated in the Tucker House Museum.
