On the western side of the square, you will find the Habersham House or as it is known now, the Olde Pink House. The house was built in 1812 for the son of the acting Royal Governor, James Habersham, Jr.
You may ask, why pink? Well, the house was originally white, but when the soft native brick began to bleed through the plastered walls it became Jamaican Pink! After several attempts to repaint it white, they finally accepted the color. From then on, the Habersham House gained a new moniker, The Olde Pink House.
Today, The Pink House is known for its fine dining and southern appeal.
