The Curator's House

The Botanic Gardens is the oldest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, opened in 1765. Located at its heart is the old Curator's House. The curator, or supervisor, was generally a local man who looked after the day-to-day running of the Botanic Gardens, reporting back to the Ministry of War back in Britain. The building dates from 1891 and has a beautiful verandah at its front.

The curator’s house is used as an exhibition space, housing a collection of historic photographs of Kingstown.

Don’t miss:

• In the neighbouring Botanic Gardens, there is a Breadfruit tree which is a sucker from the original crop of 530 breadfruit brought by the infamous Captain William Bligh in 1793.
