Government House in Belize City, long ago

This gracious mansion was home to Governors and Governor Generals before it was converted to a House of Culture.

The Government House which was built in 1814 and located on Regents Street was built for Sir George Arthur. Sir George was an Aristocrat. It is said that he was authoritative, stern, smart, and dedicated all the qualities to be a Colonial Superintendent. He was the first Superintendent to live in the Government House after its completion. He chose the location and the design of the house. Needless to say the house was built to impress. Some people say the Government House was meant to be the Buckingham Palace in Central America. Sir George played a significant role in the Abolition of Slavery in the British Empire. After leaving Belize, Sir George became the Superintendent of the British penal facility in Tasmania, Australia. Where his predecessor hanged only two men, Sir George hanged 160 men. He not only hanged them, but he kept their bodies hanging for days. Needless to say, Sir George was an enigma.
