Bermuda's Architectural Heritage: St. George’s Writer / Researcher: Michael Jarvis Editor: David L. White Published by: The Bermuda National Trust, 1998 Pages: 190 Illustrations: Black & white photos & illustrations Cover: Paperback Dimensions: 8.5" x 11" The unique nature of St. George’s and the detailed yet easy to read style of Michael Jarvis come together in the second volume in the Trust series, Bermuda's Architectural Heritage. St. George’s, distinguished by being the oldest inhabited English settlement and the second permanent town founded by English colonists in the New World, has a rich heritage of nearly 400 years of continuous occupation. Written for both the casual visitor and the more serious historian, the book contains a wonderful array of early maps, drawings and photographs. Sidebars on architectural features, including walls, roof pitch, steps, chimneys and fishponds, supplement the intriguing stories of the inhabitants of St. George’s Town and Parish.
