465 Bacon's Castle Trail

With its cruciform shape, triple chimneys and curvilinear gables, Bacon's Castle is a rare surviving example of Jacobean architecture in America. Visitors today can step back to the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century through the doors of Bacon's Castle. Using the Allen's inventories from 1711 and 1755, furnishings have been selected to interpret daily life. Much of the early and original massive hand hewn beams are evident on the upper floors of the home.

Pretty and unique historical tour, but rather pricey for what you see, in my opinion. You can, however, see the downstairs of the house and the outside garden for no charge, and there's instructions for a free cell phone tour right outside the front door. Staff was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable.

Ryan was our tour guide. He was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the three owners of the house and the Bacon escapade. Would definitely recommend.

Oldest brick structure in North America. Wonderfully preserved and thoughtfully presented with info about architecture, the people and it's history. Worth a visit.
