Bermuda's National Trust (the nonprofit organization that oversees the restoration and preservation of many of the island's gardens, open spaces, and historic buildings) has its offices in Waterville: a rambling estate overlooking Hamilton Harbour. Waterville was home to the Trimingham family for seven generations. In fact, their much-loved (and still dearly missed) department store started out here in 1842. The drawing and dining rooms, both laden with art and antiques donated by the family, are open to the public during business hours. Also worth seeing is a superb showcase garden planted by the Bermuda Rose Society.
