Exploring a SC Farm

A variety of farm equipment.

Suzy Q sleeping in the upstairs farm house.

Books from the 1800's.

Stairwall and small door to the slave quarters.

Inside the eaves of the old house.
My grandfather is renovating our pre-Civil War farm house and is taking out these areas to build windows and a bathroom. I wish they were left for the historical value.

The last remaining slave house.
This house is falling into major disrepair. Just three years ago the walls were all intact.

The back porch is almost fallen in now.

Andy inspects some of the junk left behind the slave house. The man that lived there when my mom was a kid collected things. There is a weird assortment of jugs and bottles and especially shoes like the one found below.
