The Brick House Marker, WO-33

A short distance south stood the Brick House. In 1677, at the end of Bacon's Rebellion, the rebel leaders, Drummond and Lawrence, were at Brick House when West Point surrendered to Berkeley. They fled, Drummond to be caught and executed, Lawrence never to be heard of again. In August, 1716, Governor Alexander Spotswood crossed the river there on his western expedition.
