The property received its name from Smith's Fort, built on a bluff above Gray's Creek in 1609 by Captain John Smith as a retreat in the event of an Indian attack. Directly across from Jamestown, it was built sometime between 1751 and 1765, the story-and-a-half brick house is laid in Flemish bond and was home to Jacob Faulcon and his family. A gabled roof is accented with dormer windows. Its architectural significance lies in the interior where much of the original woodwork still exists.
