The historic Waterville House, built in 1725 and site of the first Trimingham Store, is now home to the Bermuda National Trust as well as a museum that gives tourists a glimpse into the every day workings of a well-to-do family of historic Bermuda.


A tour of the Waterville House is great for tourists interested in life on Bermuda for early settlers. The two main rooms of the house are furnished with relics donated to the museum by the Tringham family, and what is not original has been replicated to make the home appear as it was during the 19th century. Outside, a stroll through the grounds shows of a garden of roses and the beautiful Mary-Jean Mitchell Green Memorial Garden and Gazebo.
