The Old Rectory has served some very different owners through its life. Orginally the home of a slave trader and pirate, it later (and more remembered) became the home of Bishop Alexander Richardson. The house today is owned by the Bermuda National Trust and is a prime example of old Bermudan architecture.

You won't find the area surrounding the historical site flooded with tourists, particularly since there is such a limited selection of places to stay nearby.
