Wallblake House


Behind a white picket fence, Wallblake House dates to 1787. It's considered the oldest structure on Anguilla and is the only remaining plantation house on the island after suffering through the French invasion of 1796, fire, drought and hurricanes. The restored kitchen, stables and slave quarters can be seen on free guided tours.

It now belongs to the adjacent St Gerard's Catholic Church.
