What is ironic about Governor Bellingham's house?
Governor Bellingham's garden is filled with native English plants, representative of the old life Puritans had turned away from.
The governor's house is filled with armor and other symbols of war, something which the Puritans disdain.
The house is made of dark wood which stands in opposition to the lightness of Bellingham's soul.
It is architecture is beautiful and ornate and thus stands in opposition with strict Puritan values in regards to vanity.
The house is quite old unlike Bellingham's family lineage.
