Historic Sam Davis Home and Plantation
Looking from the big house
Notice how you can see "through" the center.
|Dogtrot and other log-cabin outbuildings.|
|The Overseer's Cabin|
It's VERY close to the house.
|Having the floors up above the ground would have acted like a breezeway in that circulation would have been better. During the cold months, it could easily have been closed with more stones if needed.|
|Inside - Left side of the Dogtrot Cabin.|
Part of the enslaved cabins still there.
This is being interpreted as a tool shed, I think.
|The breezeway of the dogtrot|
|The right side of the dogtrot, being interpreted as laudry|
|Foundation Stones on the dogtrot|
|Notice how the chimney is not attached to the building at the top...|
This helped with pulling it off and away from the home if there was a fire.
|Can you see the bed in the corner?|
The door is loosely set. I wonder how they would have closed it off during the winter months. Maybe a blanket covered? Do you know?
|Ladles are hanging on the wall above the fireplace.|
So, not only did this represent heat for the home, it was also a cooking source.
In the summer, however, most-likely, cooking was done outside in a fire-pit.
