Fodor's Expert Review Wallblake House
Anguilla's only surviving plantation house, Wallblake House was built in 1787 by Will Blake (Wallblake is probably a corruption of his name). The place is associated with many a tale involving murder, high living, and the French invasion in 1796. On the grounds are an ancient vaulted stone cistern and an outbuilding called the Bakery, which wasn't used for making bread at all but for baking turkeys and hams. You can visit the thoroughly and thoughtfully restored house and grounds only on a guided tour, usually offered two days a week. It's also the information center for the Anguilla Heritage Trail.
