Important U.S. Civil War history was made here. When this building was the Globe Hotel, it was the headquarters of Maj. Norman Walker, the Confederate arms runner. It was his job to sneak cotton out of the American South, to trade to England for much needed munitions. His story, and the story of those who got rich running the Union blockade, is described in great detail in the Museum’s permanent exhibit: “Rogues and Runners: Bermuda and the American Civil War.”
