Historians and archaeologists are working together to reconstruct the lives
of the many slaves and tenant farmers who lived at Northampton Plantation.
Detailed information about the life of one slave, Elizabeth Hawkins, was
obtained from descendents who live in the area and who are active
participants in the research and excavations relating to the site.
Northampton is located at the Northlake residential development in Lake
Arbor, in a community park. Interpretative signage guides visitors on a
tour of this unique site.
