Historians and archaeologists are working together to reconstruct the lives
of the many slaves and tenant farmers who lived at Northampton Plantation.
This historic site features reconstructed foundations of two slave
quarteres from the former Northampton Plantation (1673-1860).
Archaeological excavations have recovered artifacts and information about
the lives of African American slaves and tenant farmers who lived there
from the late 18th through the mid-20th century. Interpretive signage
describes the site’s hisotry and ongoing research.
