The Mutual Building, Bridgetown, St. Michael, Barbados Pocket Guide

The Mutual Building

At the Lower end of Broad Street, in Bridgetown, Barbados,  stands an imposing building fondly referred to by locals as The Mutual Building, even though the Mutual association has long since passed. Erected in 1895, this very tall grey Victorian structure with its silver domes is a piece of architectural beauty which lends an aura of elegance to the city surroundings. One unique feature is its full verandah on the second floor which almost fully encircles that entire floor.




The original structure has been largely maintained, however the occupants have changed several times over the years. At one time, the building was called The Barbados Insurance Society Building. The Mutual Bank of the Caribbean once had a branch in that building, however that bank was restructured and is no longer in existence.


The building was subsequently sold to the Bank of Butterfield (BOB) which has a full branch outlet housed in that beautiful historical building. A photographer's dream, there is no way the building can be overlooked once in Bridgetown, Barbados.
