This grand two-story house was built by Governor Samuel Day in 1699 to serve as Government House. When his troubled administration came to an end in 1701 Day refused to surrender the house to the new Governor, Benjamin Bennett. Day’s protest was short-lived as he was arrested for debt and died in prison. In 1722 a new Government House was built and the property was acquired by the Tucker family who lived there until the 1860s.  During the American Civil War Major Norman S. Walker Confederate Political Agent, used the upper floor as his headquarters. After the Civil War the house was used as a hotel. Now the property is owned by the Bermuda National Trust to interpret the role of the Confederacy in Bermuda.
