The Bath Historical Society have done a good job in not only preserving the interior of a wealthy Bath resident's 18th century town house, but converting it into a small entertaining and educational museum.

This beautifully maintained Georgian house illustrates the way rich people lived and details the horrors of the Slave Trade. The house was used for filming a respectable trade written by Phillips Gregory.
