The Salt Raker Inn -Turks and Caicos Islands, British West Indies




The Salt Raker Inn is a historic landmark located on quaint Duke Street. The main building was originally built as a residence for Bermudan shipwright Jonathan Glass in the 1850s. Using shipwright skills and techniques, it has withstood many hurricanes. The main house has other features, which are a link to the islands past. Some of the beams and rafters are made of native mahogany. The cedar shingles on the north side of the roof came from Canada in trade for salt in the heyday of the Turks & Caicos Salt Industry. During the 20th century the main building was converted into a guesthouse. While still decidedly historic in character, modern conveniences have been added to enhance the experience
