Inscription
Nathaniel Bacon (1647-1676), leader of Bacon's Rebellion, acquired land in 1674 at Curles Neck in Henrico County and property near the falls on the north side of the James River that became known as Bacon's Quarter in what is now present-day Richmond. Bacon's Quarter, located nearby, was run by an overseer and likely contained a trading post. Bacon's Quarter Branch was a small stream that ran through the tract and one time flowed from approximately the Boulevard meandering eastward into Shockoe Creek. Bacon died of dysentery in 1676, while leading a rebellion against the Virginia government and Governor Sir William Berkeley.
