Bridge House Bermuda
The house which looks almost new, used to be the residence of the governors during early times when Bermuda was a British colony.
One of the well known mid 1700 residents of the house was privateer Bridger Goodrich who came from Virginia and was a loyalist to the king. He purchased the Bridge House for $1,000 in cash.
He was known for blocking America's sea trade along Bermuda's waters. He also captured local vessels even violating the legislation that was already in place then.
The house was named Bridge House since there is a small wooden bridge on the opposite side leading to the St. George's Harbor. Bridge House is now split up into an art gallery with a studio and a B&B guest apartment.
