colonel thomas swann lived across the james river from jamestown at swann's point plantation. colonel swann also owned a tavern in jamestown. the foundation of this elongated four room structure was typical of such establishments at the time. because colonel swann advised the rebel nathaniel bacon, his plantation was undamaged during bacon's rebellion but charred timbers excavated from the site suggest that swann's tavern was burned during the rebellion. the tavern was reopened in 1679.
