These houses are still standing on the plantation

It is private property, but as a teen we use to sneak onto the property and go in these houses. Kind of a test of manhood type thing. There are ghost stories abound about Hermitage Plantation and the slave houses.

Slave Cabins

Perhaps these are still around in my beloved Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan, where we've restored two of 52 brick houses made and lived in by enslaved workers at Henry McAlpin's coastal Georgia plantation, the Hermitage.
