13 Bacon's Castle - Bacon’s Castle is the oldest brick dwelling in North America and was once the home of Arthur Allen, a prosperous merchant and planter, and his family. Allen’s Brick House 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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacon%27s_Rebellion
14 Bacon’s Castle is an example of High Jacobean architecture and notable for its stunning triple stacked chimneys. The home features a reconstructed 17th-century English formal garden restored by the Garden Club of Virginia. Several outbuildings also survive, including an 1830 slave dwelling.

18 World's Oldest Edible Ham. The 115-year-old ham, which is reportedly the oldest in the world, was originally cured in 1902 by the Gwaltney Foods meat company before it was was lost in storage. On its rediscovery two decades later, the elated Pembroke D. Gwaltney Jr. made the piece of pork his “pet ham.” However edible may be a stretch - To most people "edible" means more than the ability to eat something without it killing you.
19 However only the ham business remains in Smithfield - peanuts are no longer part of local agriculture.
