Arlington House Museum is an eighteenth century building located in the historic northern town of Speightstown and features three floors or exhibits, including an interactive and audio visual visitor communications.
The museum provides an abundance of interesting information, while entertaining and educating all ages about the Barbados heritage.
The Bajan Chattel House is as distinctly Barbadian as the
local dialect and accent. It is a result of historical circumstances
and local ingenuity.
Today, even though most Barbadians live in more modern structures, there
are still some who live in chattel houses. The architectural beauty
still stands out today but the houses tend to be larger and
more elaborate with sash windows and foundations made of concrete blocks
instead of stones.
St Nicholas Abbey is likely the last remaining authentic house of the 17th Century that exists anywhere in the "New World". When this residence was built around 1658 of brick and limestone, many of the structures in the North America were made of timber, and have long since perished.
One of the few distilleries of its kind, St Nicholas has embraced the traditions that made Barbados rum famous over 350 years ago.
