Tuesday 8 May 2012: Allee House
This House is on the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware and is the National Register of Historic Places
This mid-18th century brick farmhouse and outbuildings are located on a tract of land that was originally purchased by John Allee, an upper middle class farmer of French Huguenot ancestry . His son, Abraham, built the house in 1753. Abraham was a prominent figure in the political life of Kent County, where the house is located. The house's brickwork pattern is laid in Flemish bond; its alternating short and long faces of brick serve as a prime example of early Delaware plantation architecture..
