By Way of the Back Door: Agriculture

Celebrate Black History Month with us every Saturday in February! Each Saturday we’ll be taking a closer look, honoring the daily lives of enslaved people from the 18th and 19th centuries. This week we are focusing on how important agriculture was for people of African descent, both enslaved and free, in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
Today’s Activities:
Cooking for the planter class
Running of the historic cotton gin
Guided Tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. These tours will have a focus on agriculture.
By Way of the Back Door is included in Historic Brattonsville’s general admission for Saturdays in February.
