Historical Society Museum

St. George’s Historical Society Museum and Mitchell House is one of the island’s oldest and most unique institutions.  Built in the 1730s by a prosperous St. George’s merchant, Major Walter Mitchell, for his nephew William, Mitchell House has retained all of its 18th century character and charm.
