St George’s Historical Society marks 100th anniversary

The St George’s Historical Society will be celebrated tomorrow through a new commemorative stamp series to mark the organisation’s 100th anniversary.

The St George’s Historical Society was formed by legislation on May 13, 1922.

That same year the society assumed ownership of Mitchell House on Duke of Kent Street, St George’s, which it converted into the St George’s Historical Society Museum.

The four-stamp series highlights the museum and its contents.

A Government spokeswoman said: “The facility remains much as it was nearly 300 years ago.

“With its period furnishings, recreated colonial-era kitchen and historical documents and artefacts about Bermuda’s history, including a Gutenberg-style printing press – the facility transports the visitor back to the centuries of early life in Bermuda.

“The house is an instantly recognisable landmark in the heart of St. George’s, and it has remained the home of the Society ever since its formation.”

The commemorative stamps can be purchased from the General Post Office in Hamilton, as well as various sub post offices around the island.
