The house that reggae built

The house that reggae built

If you think the most interesting thing about this $980,000 Bahamian mansion is that it’s owned by Rita Marley, widow of the famed reggae singer Bob Marley, you might be right; after all, she was a backup singer for Marley’s band, The Wailers. But get a load of this — the house is said to have been built by rum runners in 1920, and a tunnel (which is no longer functional) connects the home to a nearby harbor that allowed the bootleggers to smuggle their booty.
