Bacon’s Castle is the oldest brick dwelling in North America and was built for Arthur Allen and his family in 1665. Originally known as Allen’s Brick House, it 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 property has also been home to hundreds of indentured and enslaved persons and our guided tours aim to tell the whole story of its history.
Bacon's Castle is owned and operated by Preservation Virginia and is open March through December on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and also Mondays during the summer.
Tickets may be purchased online or onsite.
