"Oldest Home in the City"

Built in 1849, this manse was originally the home of Senator Forbes Britton. Constructed with local brick and scored masonry, the house got received its name after the estate's 100th anniversary in 1949. At the time it was built the former senator could see the wharf from the house, but after years of devastating hurricanes in the early part of the 20th Century, the shoreline was moved farther east and the sea wall was built. Amazingly, it has survived subsequent storms over the decades and today it's open for visitors.
