#1 This old buiding was once quarter housing for slaves in the mid 1800's. The two side extensions were added in much later years. It is used today as storage building. There are not many of these left in the area.

#2 Don't know when this was built, other than early 1900's. When I was a kid, they had wagons and tractors in here. Of course, it was much higer then. Today, one can barely walk under the two sides, and a cane tractor can no longer be sheltered in the center. Amazing how these have survived the hurricanes.

That old barn looks like it's seen better days. What's it doing, sinking or just rotting from the bottom up? Nice pictures.

Thanks, Roger, Ted, Don, and 486.

Don, it does appear to me that it is decaying from bottom up, some of the supports have collasped. I was cautious about getting too close, though it has weathered quite a few storms, one recently with up to 60 mph wind gusts.

The former slave quarters is a great place to go hunting with a metal detector. Small brass or copper slave tags worn around their necks fetch a very good price these days.

If you find where a out house stood you can find interesting things that were thrown in to fill the latrine holes (bottles, china, clay pipes, broken toys of the era etc. etc.)

Yesterdays trash is todays treasures.
