Site 19 - Slave Quarter View Interactive Version ]

This site and Site 23 are two distinct clusters of domestic artifacts, each associated with a slave quarter. Creamware, pearlware, green bottle glass, wrought nails and hand-made brick all attest to the quarter’s being occupied during Jefferson's lifetime.

This slave quarter and nailery complex was most likely under the direct supervision of Edmund Bacon who lived at Site 17 –located on the hill overlooking this area one hundred yards to the north.
