Small but lots of history

If this is your first trip to GTC, this should not be missed. Lots of local info and history you will probably not fine any place else.

Nicely done inside and outside in the garden with all the statues! Makes you try to remember this all started with the loyalists around 1786.....cool place!

You can spend a little or a lot of time here. Bring reading glasses if you're debating whether or not to do so...there's lots to learn.

Stories and artifacts, photos, etc. of GTC from its earliest days. Lots of family history too. Hard to believe they moved one house 2 or 3 times before it settled where it is now. Pick up some original local art while you are there.

If you are interested in the history of GTC, this is the place to go. Old photos, painting and ship models help tell the story. The kitchen out in the garden is a must see.

This museum is a fascinating glimpse into the past of New Plymouth located on Green Turtle Cay in the outer Abacos. This community, pioneered by Loyalists in the late 1700's who fled the American colonies after the Revolutionary War, features quaint New England style housing, and is rich in Bahamian, American and English history. Withstanding the isolation, numerous hurricanes and... More

I was amazed by all the history contained! English royalty have visited GTC! Albert Lowe was hired by royalty to make portraits. Genevieve, painted as a young girl, is one of my favorites and she is now a mature woman, recently employed at Dave's cafe/liquor shop. Fun to compare now with then! She is still a beautiful lady!
