Founded in the 1700’s and once enjoying status as the capital of the Cayman Islands, Bodden Town holds significant historic importance to Grand Cayman and the Cayman Islands. In 1773 the population of Bodden Town was around two hundred which at that time represented about fifty percent of the island’s total population. With a natural harbor Bodden Town was attractive to both merchant and trading ships as well as Caribbean pirates.
Bodden Town is approximately eight miles east of Grand Cayman’s present capital George Town and located on the South coast adjacent to the district of Savannah in fact it was originally known as South Side before its name change to Bodden Town some time in the eighteenth century. Today Bodden Town is largely made up of residential homes, with some historic properties of note which include The Mission house which rose to prominence during the 1800’s and is now held as a tourist attraction.
