Figure 3.  Ms. Tena's House

Ms. Tena Waiters was one of the last people to live in this house, which was much bigger when she lived in it.  This photo shows it as it is today—restored to its original 1836 appearance.  The people who lived here in those early years endured the harsh conditions of slavery.  They worked from daylight to dark.  Then they ate their supper and returned to these cabins to sleep a few hours before beginning another day of work.  (Photo 1984)
