Built in 1665, Bacon's Castle is the oldest brick dwelling and the only surviving example of High Jacobean architecture in the United States. Originally the home of Arthur Allen, a prosperous planter, and his family, the house was occupied during the political uprising of 1676 led by Nathaniel Bacon, known as Bacon's Rebellion. Though the house stayed in the Allen family until 1884, the 1676 occupation gave the site its name. The surrounding gardens were meticulously reconstructed through archaeological evidence and research to accurately resemble the formal English gardens that graced the grounds in the 17th century.
