Description

This Georgian house was built in 1790 for John Pinney, a sugar merchant. Many of the rooms have been restored to the elegance and fashionable splendor of their original condition, including the first floor drawing room, which would have enjoyed extensive views over the city and docks. The basement kitchen, housekeeper's room and laundry contrast sharply with the master's chambers and reveal the world "below stairs." Exhibits detailing the relationship between the original owner merchant and his black servant, Pero are a fascinating insight into Bristol's slave trade past.
