The Garden Club of Bermuda has made a donation of $10,000 to Carter House.

A spokesperson said, “The Garden Club of Bermuda donated $10,000.00 to Carter House [the St David’s Island Historical Society] which is believed to be one of the oldest Bermuda vernacular farmhouses, surviving largely in its original structure and form for over three centuries. An authentic mud and stud palmetto thatched Settlers’ Cabben of 1612 was added in 2012.

“An open house was held selling plants, crafts and gifts and there was also a planting activity for children. People in period costumes welcomed visitors and gave guided tours of the historical buildings.

“The house is now a museum preserving the one-of-a-kind culture and history of the St. David’s Islanders. The garden has been replanted with endemic and native trees and plants as it once was to complement the old house and the Cabben.

“Two benches, two picnic tables and three olivewoods were also donated offering visitors a place to sit quietly and let history and nature speak to them.”
