Proposed Delisting: Hureka House In St David’s

February 13, 2019 | 3 Comments

The Ministry has proposed the delisting of a building of ‘Special Architectural and Historical Interest,’ noting that the wooden cottage in St. David’s has been deteriorating and is “now beyond repair.”

This is according to a recent Official Government Notice, as the Minister “must before removing the historic monument from the List of buildings of special architectural or historical interest give notice to the owners, occupiers, and the public of my intention and also give them an opportunity to make such representations or objections as they think fit.”

A Ministry spokesperson said, “The structure is a wooden cottage near St. Luke’s AME. Church in St. David’s which has been deteriorating, due to neglect, for a number of years.

“It received major damage in 2015 as a result of Tropical Storm Fay and Hurricane Gonzalo resulting in the rear of the cottage collapsing. The structure is now beyond repair. The Historic Buildings Advisory Committee [HBAC] is in support of delisting.”

    Building had no historical interest or architectural either. The property is noted in Mr. Butler’s book about old Bermuda Houses “Wooden”.

    Does anyone know whether someone can take on its restoration as a private venture?
