Slave Cabin to be rebuilt on Museum property

This picturesque little cabin does not look as if it could be more than 150 years old. This picture taken in 1978 during an unusual snowy winter day gives the idea of a "play house" for children rather than a home for servants on a plantation. We are about 90% sure that it was Daniel Jackson, a former slave of Hugh Buchanan and Edward Story, who lived in the cabin during and after the Civil War. He went to war with Hugh as a servant.
Check out the website for more information about the cabin.
