Oakland Plantation Garden
Park Staff invites you to experience our small garden. We have planted seasonal crops which were traditionally grown by the Oakland Plantation Community.
In the spring our garden has tomatoes, okra, peppers, peas, squash, egg plant, and other vegetables. We also have cotton and tobacco; both traditional cash crops on the plantation.

An overseer was responsible for management of the plantation’s laborers, stock, land, and tools. The overseer's residence at Oakland was constructed in 1861 by enslaved labor for an overseer named Seneca Pace. Pace kept a daily journal of work and weather at Oakland.
