George Washington House Museum Tours & Dinner Show The GEORGE WASHINGTON HOUSE in Barbados is a beautifully restored 18th Century Plantation House where George Washington and his brother Lawrence slept in 1751.

For two months a 19 year old George Washington and his ailing brother stayed at what was then a private residence. This visit was not known to many, but it was an important chapter in the life of who would go on to be the first President of the United States of America and a great military and political leader.  

His visit to Barbados was his first and only visit outside of North America.

At George Washington House there's also a museum showcasing 18th & 19th century Barbados as well as artifacts and recreations of yesteryear. The house sits in beautifully landscaped grounds with a gift shop and a refreshing cafe

The property was rented by George and his brother Lawrence before it was acquired by the British Government to establish a garrison. It was the British Military Regimental Resident Engineer's Quarters and later became Bush Hill House the Commanding Officers Quarters. After the withdrawal of the British forces in 1905, it returned to private ownership until it was restored in 2000 as a heritage attraction by the Government.

The house and surrounding buildings have now been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as the Historic Garrison Area.
