St. George Town, Bermuda

The Town of St. George, founded in 1612 and the 5th oldest European-founded municipality in the Western Hemisphere, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

Its architecture and cobbled streets make the Town of St. George perhaps Bermuda’s most appealing and picturesque town. That there are cobblestone streets is remarkable since the cobblestones had to be importedfrom Wales since no suitable material was available locally.

Although one of the New World’s most historic sites, St. George Town is still very much alive, not a mere historical recreation. It continues as a thriving daytime commercial center and seasonal cruise port.

St. George Town, the capital of Bermuda from 1612 until 1815, was where many English colonists headed to Jamestown, VA, were shipwrecked for 42 weeks in 1609.

Among the stranded was John Rolfe, whose wife and child died here. He is best known for later marrying the Indian princess, Pocahontas. Look here for a more detailed Bermuda history.
