Much of the architecture found in the Caribbean is a hodgepodge, or melting pot, because early settlers transported their design ideas and influences from their homeland. This is no exception. Balcony House is typical of early 18th century southeast American architecture: a wooden structure, totally restored between 1992 and 1993. As you tour New Providence, you'll recognize this as a popular style that many of the early arrivals embraced. The refurbishment includes interiors, furnishings and home accessories from the period. Guided tours are available and encouraged. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
