The official residence of the Governor General of the Bahamas since 1801, this imposing pink and white building on Duke Street is an excellent example of the mingling of Bahamian-British and American Colonial architecture. The graceful columns and broad, circular drive recall the styles of Virginia or the Carolinas, but the pink colour, distinctive cross-laid cornerstones, and louvered wooden shutters are typically Bahamian.
Remember to keep left!

THE STRAW MARKET
What is regarded as the birth of straw vending in the Bahamas as an industry began following the death of the sponge industry in the 1940's. Searching for another means of income, Bahamian women started plaiting and decorating dried palm and sisal plant leaves to create items such as baskets, bags and dolls. Soon large numbers of women were making straw souvenirs that were sought after by visitors.
