This little home in Bodden Town, known as the Willy Jackson house, could well be one of the oldest residences in the district.

According to the National Trust’s historic homes registry, the single story house is estimated to have been built in 1904 by Mr. Jackson, and unlike many early homes of that time, is constructed not out of wattle and daub but of shiplap timber, with a zinc gable roof and a wood porch.

The house, located close to the Bodden Town public library, is distinctive for its elaborate wooden fretwork giving it a charming “gingerbread” look.
