The Shambles is America's oldest surviving Colonial-era marketplace. Dating all the way back to 1745, the iconic open-air space mimics the market structures of rural England, characterized by its two parallel rows of brick pillars supporting a gable roof that covers an arched and plastered ceiling. It's attached to the Head House, America's oldest surviving fire-engine house, which dates to 1805. Still home to a weekly farmers' market, the Shambles has served as the setting for many a Balboa Supper Club dinner as well as weddings and special events of all sorts.
