Overview

Built in 1854, Tyrol Cot was bought as a wedding gift by Sir Grantley Adams for his wife Grace in 1929. This young lawyer became the first Premier of Barbados (1954-58) and then Prime Minister of the West Indies Federation (1958-1962). The couple’s only child, J.M.G.M "Tom" Adams, was born at Tyrol Cot and also became a lawyer. He was Prime Minister of Barbados from 1976 to 1985. Tyrol Cot is built of coral stone cemented with egg whites. The flooring of Canadian fir is still intact. The home abounds with treasures - Sir Grantley’s books, photos, paintings, china and original furniture still furnish the premises. A chattel house village complete with utensils of yesteryear and a replica slave hut provide a wonderful glimpse of old Barbados. -Marsilyn Browne
