This morning I had the privilege to speak at the unveiling of a historical marker at the Old Brick House in Conjurer's Neck. The site was first occupied by Native Americans as early as 1000-3000 BC. A permanent settlement of the Appamattuck tribe was located in the area by 1600 AD and English colonist first arrived in 1620. In 1677, the land was purchased by Richard Kennon, a member of the House of Burgesses from Henrico County.
The Brick House is thought to be the oldest brick home in the region and among the oldest dwellings in Virginia. From the 1600's to present, the house has seen many owners. In 1990, the Comstock family deeded to the Conjurer's Neck Homeowner's Association, who in turn transferred ownership of the property to the Old Brick House Foundation in 2001. In 2003, the house was listed on the National Register of Historical Places. You can visit www.oldbrickhouse.org to read more about this unique treasure.
