A fifth of a mile from the plantation home of Zephaniah Kingsley are the remains of 25 tabby cabins. Arranged in a semicircle, there were 32 cabins originally, 16 on either side of the road. This area represents the slave community, homes of the men, women, and children who lived and worked on Kingsley Plantation more than 150 years ago. It was illegal for these people to record their history, making the knowledge gained from this site very rare and important.
Today, we use primary sources, oral tradtions, and archaeology to help tell their stories.
