Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral (George and King Streets, Nassau, New Providence Island) — built in 1841, the present edifice is the fifth church that has occupied this spot. Along the walls, tablets trace the trials Nassau citizens endured over 150 years ago. Be sure to look at the baptismal font at the back of the sanctuary. There you will see the hallmark of its British carpenter, a tiny church mouse carved into the wood. The Lord Proprietors built the original building in 1670, making it the first church built in The Islands of the Bahamas.
