The building was constructed in 1735 by John

expanded his business holdings in the

William Bacchus in 1854, who used it as both a
store and a residence.
document of this pattern shows it to be not only
block printed but flocked. Adelphi's rendition

appropriate for the time period.
This pattern is
licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
