The Garrison Club had a spectacular reception and dinner in this amazing building.The house chef prepared a delicious dinner and it felt like we stepped back in time in this old victorian style mansion. Old Government House hosts many community events and art shows.

after cooling off in the park's wading pool across the street, we noticed the sign outside the government house mentioning Free Tour... So we decided to explore!

To catch the free tour, make sure you arrive before the hour because the tour starts on the hour and lasts 45-60 min. We arrived at 12:14pm and decided to head to St. Andrews instead.

A rainy morning spent touring this property. Interesting history and a diverse range of paintings adorn the corridors and rooms.
