Preservation Virginia will present a virtual tour this afternoon of Bacon’s Castle. Here is the description of this Virginia historic landmark:
Bacon’s Castle is the oldest brick dwelling in North America and was once the home of Arthur Allen, a prosperous merchant and planter, and his family. Allen’s Brick House earned the moniker “Bacon’s Castle” in 1676 when several of Nathaniel Bacon’s men occupied the home for four months during the uprising that became known as Bacon’s Rebellion.
The tour is at 2 p.m. If you are interested, here is the link.There are currently no comments highlighted.
