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.


The ‘welcoming arms’ stairs invite you in to view a collection that evokes by-gone daily routines, early travel patterns, and printing process as well as the impact of momentous external events including the American Revolution and Civil War.


The St. George’s Historical Society purchased the property at the corner of Featherbed Alley and Duke of Kent Street in 1922 and is open 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday April through November and 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday only January through March.

Admission: Adults, $5.00, children, $2.00.
