Evolution Creation Debate
Saturday, August 20, 2005
Down House, Downe, Bromley, London.
Charles Darwin worked on his theories of evolution by natural selection at this house. Darwin bought the house in 1842 and lived there for 40 years until his death there in 19 April 1882. It has been a museum since 1929 and was acquired by English Heritage in 1996. It has been nominated to become a world heritage site.
In 1877, a new study was added that holds his writing desk and chair. The old study where Darwin wrote The Origin of the Species was converted into a smoking room.
Darwin was born 12 February 1809 at The Mount, Shrewsbury
