Loyalists in the Bahamas

After that little difference of opinion in North American during the 1770s - known as the American Revolution - a group of loyalists to the Crown from North Carolina moved to Nassau and established a new government there.

The architecture of this complex of buildings is based on those in New Bern, North Carolina; construction began in 1815. They include the House of Assembly, the Senate building, the Supreme court and the building where the Count of Appeals meets. If you arrive when the courts are in session, you may see judges and lawyers dressed in traditional British robes and horsehair wigs. Also featured in the courtyard in a statue of Queen Victoria.
