This site rose to prominence in the 1800’s and became known as the “Mission House” to early missionaries, teachers and families who lived and contributed to establishing the Presbyterian ministry and school in Bodden Town. The Mission House takes you back to an earlier time in Cayman’s history by recreating the living situations of the three families know to have owned the home. As your guide leads you through the Living, Dining, Bath and Bedroom you will see many of the genuine artefacts known to be owned by the Watler family who lived there for 77 years. A real sense of family is evident in the home as well as many opportunities to understand the challenges faced by the early missionaries and teachers in Cayman like the Reverend & Mrs. Redpath and Mr. and Mrs. Lyon.Take a look at our Bodden Town day trip planning app to schedule your visit to Mission House and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
