I spent several hours enjoying this historic house and garden. As I looked down from the balcony, I saw hundreds of tourists walk by this beautiful old house without giving it a glance. There were only a handful of people who ventured in while I was there. This wonderful, 19th-century house dates far back to a time of pirates, frequent shipwrecks, and yellow fever. Inside, the light, airy rooms are furnished with antiques in an elegant and comfortable manner. Notable, also, are the many first edition prints by John James Audubon. In the spacious garden are brick walkways which meander through established tropical plantings. Guides are there to answer questions, but visitors are free to explore at will. Don't miss this historic house museum which is a "hidden" oasis surrounded by the touristy madness of Old Town.
