  • 6. Bacon’s Castle The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and accommodated all of our requests to include SOL [Standards of Learning] specific information. Our trip included a walking tour of the grounds, slave quarters, and gardens, a tour through the house, and a lesson in the kitchen. Standing in an abandoned slave quarters was the most awe inspiring part of the trip for me. Seeing how the slaves of Virginia lived left me speechless. When I asked my team which field trips they wanted to pursue this year, Bacon’s Castle was at the top of the list. By the way, our fourth grade goes on about 10 field trips each school year. This was the ultimate trip to experience Virginia Studies SOL 4 which covers Everyday Colonial Life in Virginia.
