Georgian House Museum

Recommended
Built in 1790 by William Paty for a merchant and sugar cane planter, the house was built of Bath stone in typical 18C style with a pedimented door and rooms decorated in the style of Robert Adam (1728-1792). The furniture includes a secretaire-bookcase (c. 1800), a mahogany desk and a long-case clock. Note the imposing Sheraton-style double secretaire bookcase dating from around 1800.
