Art and History come Together at the Verdmont House Museum
With four chimneys, three floors, and one of Bermuda’s finest cedar stairways, the Verdmont House Museum holds a collection of antique mahogany and cedar furniture as well as oil paintings, Chinese and English porcelain, and Georgian silver made by Bermuda silversmiths in the 1700s. Some of the rooms are even paneled in cedar wood. Be sure to check out the exhibit “Verdmont: A House and Its People.”
Part of the African Diaspora Heritage Trail – which is officially designated a UNESCO Slave Route Project - Verdmont House mixes aspects of both the 17th and 18th centuries in its Georgian architecture. It overlooks Bermuda’s beautiful South Shore and is surrounded by an 18th century-style garden filled with herbs, roses, and palmetto trees. Take in a guided tour, or just enjoy the peaceful views.
