#12 of 18 in Things to do in The Valley
See Wallblake House , the oldest and only surviving plantation house in the capital of Anguilla. Built in 1787, it stands as a modest but important window through the harsh and rich Anguillan history. The house has had many owners, all of them contributing to the historical value of the estate; today it's owned by the Roman Catholic church. Enter and witness the humble interior, chairs, desks, and intricate wooden details on the walls. The back yard consists of an old stone cistern, stable, and bakery with original oven. A tour guide is provided. Make Wallblake House a centerpiece of your The Valley vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our The Valley visit planner.
