Continuing on our journey today of southern plantation life...
If you lived in a fancy manor 150 years ago, chances are it had a cookhouse.
A cookhouse was used to prepare food and do noisy laundry chores.
This reduced the chance of fire to the larger areas of living.
I wouldn't mind living in a cute little cottage like this today!
I love this little porch.
This would be a food preparation area....
...this would be for baking...
...and this room would be for laundry.
These images are of former slave quarters from a plantation.
You can see here how everything a family needed had
to be provided for in one room...
...and the other side of that room...
Finally, here's an old Georgia barn from the Civil War Era.
These old wheels just outside the entrance
provided some roundabout imagery.
Tomorrow I'll be sharing the fancy Dickey House, circa 1840 GA.
