George Washington House

Starting at:




Avg. Price Per Adult Planner Icon
The young George Washington and his ailing brother Lawrence resided in this historic plantation house, also known as Bush Hill House, for two months in 1751. Barbados was the only country ever visited by the future First Father of his country and Bush Hill House the only house he ever lived in outside of the continental United States. The visit is a little known but very important chapter in the life of the then unknown 19 year old man, who would go on to become, as later described by Light-Horse Harry Lee, first in war, first in peace, first in hearts of his countrymen.

Our visitors tell us that it is one of the most fascinating tours on the island!
