If you're one to make a point to learn about local architecture and marvel at how each place puts a unique spin on home building, then a trip to Captain Charlie Kirkconnel's House is for you.
Built in 1915, the Kirkconnel House is a prefect example of a Caymanian style house. It is beautiful, painted white with green fixtures, stands two stories high, and used ironwood posts as the foundation and floors. Outside, builders used the tongue and grove method with yellow pine hardwood. The roof is of cedar shingles, and finally, the beautiful staircase is made of mahogany from a wreck on the cay.
