This 17th-century building owned by the National Trust is currently the location of Bermuda National Gallery East. Previously it was home to several of Bermuda's governors—and at least one ghost. Mistress Christian Stevenson, who was condemned as a witch in 1653, proclaimed her innocence at this spot, and now seems reluctant to leave it. Other National Trust properties also qualify as "favorite haunts." For instance, the Old Rectory on Broad Alley is said to have a spirit
who plays the spinet in the wee hours of the morning. Verdmont, in Smith's Parish, also has its share of resident ghosts: among them, an adolescent girl who died of typhoid there in 1844.
