More about this marker. This marker replaced a marker with this number from the late 1920s or early 1930s entitled “Baconís Plantation” located at approximately this same place. It read “In 1676 this region was Baconís ĎĎQuarteríí, or plantation, the property of Nathaniel Bacon, who headed a rebellion that was a forerunner of the Revolution.” The original marker had been missing for many decades. —Ed.
