Carter House - On Kindly base Bermuda.
Carter House was built in 1640 and has been maintained in it's original state. Whereas most houses down here were built of wood at that time, this was built out of Bermuda sandstone and you can see the roof sagging with age. There is a basement and you walk up into the house via the stone stairs. This was used as a beauty parlor while the US owned the base. When they left in 1995 the Bermuda Government took over and the house is run as a small museum. In the foreground to the left is a Bermuda Cedar tree. This house was strategically built into the side of the hill and has withstood every hurricane for close to 400 years!
