Austin’s House, a 19th century colonial building previously known as Kingston House is located at the junction of High and Barracks Streets, Kingston, Georgetown. The building was renamed in 1892, after the first Anglican Bishop of Guyana (British Guiana), William Piercy Austin. The building within recent years was rehabilitated by the Dioceses of Guyana and serves as the official residence for its Bishop.
