The BVI recently turned the house where Mr. Faulkner, one of the fathers of the BVI, into a museum. We were fortunate enough to see it while on Anegada. The house is the old clapboard style of architecture, which was interesting to see from the inside, and is furnished with items from Mr. Faulkner's extended family to reflect what it would have looked like during his lifetime. And it was also very enjoyable to have the docent there to answer questions not just about Mr. Faulkner and his role in the formation of the modern BVI, but about Anegada in general. It's free to the public, with only a small donation jar if you feel so moved.
One of the Fathers of this Little Nation.
In the heart of the settlement on Anegada, one can easily find the home of the late Honourable Theodolph Halburn Faulkner Museum. He was a political activist who stands prominently in the history of the British Virgin Islands. He was a visionary who had the courage to stand up and disagree with government policies of the day.
He sensitized the people of the people of the Virgin Islands on the need for change and the momentum generated led to the famous 1949 March, when over 1500 Virgin Islanders demonstrated their desire for a Constitution and the re-birth of the Legislative Council.
He is referred by many as "One of the Fathers of this Little Nation."
In 2000 Faulkner House was declared a national monument.
