Smokehouse Re-Creation

02 Smokehouse resizedThe smokehouse was one of the most important outbuildings because it was used to preserve and store the hundreds of pounds of smoked pork that served as the principal source of meat on the plantation. This original smokehouse stood until the mid-1980s, but it was a pile of rubble by 2001 when restoration began on the main house. Archeology revealed the details of the original building including the stepped-out foundation. Based on photographic and archeological evidence, the smokehouse exterior was re-created. The interior houses the high-tech mechanical system for the main house, including heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, dehumidifying, and fire suppression equipment.
