Before he became the first president of the United States, the young George Washington joined his sick brother for a healing trip to Barbados, where the pair stayed in a plantation home now known as the Bush Hill House.

What to Expect

The Bush Hill House is the only house outside of the continental United States where George Washington ever lived, making this a popular attraction amongst visitors from the U.S. Today, the property has been restored to replicate President Washington's living conditions during the time he was on the island in 1751.

The Bush Hill House is an expansive plantation manner, recognizable by the yellow paint and blue awnings set above each of the six windows on the front of the house.
